Closer To The Edge (2011)
Originally shot in 3D, this documentary was made to give an unprecedented look at the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy motorcycle race, and it does so superbly. Following the leading riders of the 2010 competition, Guy Martin and Ian Hutchinson, the movie explores the drive necessary to become King of the Mountain at the world’s most dangerous race. Breathtakingly filmed on location, it is a compelling watch whether you are a motorcycle enthusiast or not.
The Scene: There are almost too many incredible shots to mention just one, but during the heat of the race, toward the end of the film there is a sequence of stunning aerial following racer Guy Martin while he takes some masterful turns on the track.Back to top
