In 1980 New York, three young men who were all adopted meet each other and find out they're triplets who were separated at birth. But their quest to find out why turns into a bizarre and sinister mystery.
The story of Dick Cheney, an unassuming bureaucratic Washington insider, who quietly wielded immense power as Vice President to George W. Bush, reshaping the country and the globe in ways that we still feel today.
Alex Honnold has done the triple crown of climbing in Yosemite. El Cap, Half Dome and the Mt. Watkins. See more »
Alex's brain scan in the film is referred to as an "MRI." This imaging modality is commonly used on athletes who need to have the extent of tissue damage visualized by a radiologist. Alex was studied with "fMRI" or functional MRI, which follows localized blood flow in the range of seconds which increases with increased neural activity. The interpretation presented in the film suggests Alex had a decreased response to fearful stimuli (pictures of sinking ships, knives, etc.) since there doesn't appear to be increased activity in the amygdala as compared to other subjects considered to be "normal."

No, I'm not inspired to free climb El Capitan or any slope. I'm an 84 year old retired businessman still trying to figure out how to best live my life, and I left the theater last night in awe of Alex Honnald's achievement -- climbing an almost vertical granite wall in a little over three hours when, in any second, the slightest mistake would result in death.
Watching Alex do it -- watching the joy in his face when he got beyond some of the most difficult challenges as well as on the top,\; watching the intense focus and concentration as he sought safe holds; watching what I read as his quiet determination and confidence when he approached the wall for his solo climb -- these images will be with me for the balance of my life.
They will return to me when I need focus and concentration in the moment to achieve something. They will return to me when I need to build confidence and determination to achieve a goal. They will return to me as I examine and release thoughts of fear that I conjure up (but I'm not blessed, as Alex is, with an amygdala that does not respond to fear inducing visions).
Thank you, Alex, for the powerful inspiration.
