Movies in a Minute: The Summit

Back in August of 2008, a large group of climbers attempted to reach the summit of K2, the world's second-highest mountain.

The movie takes a look into the mysterious death of 11 of the climbers. It is known as the most deadly day on K2.

The whole movie is set up as a mystery. What was the cause of the deaths? Was it language? Oxygen deprivation?

My criticism of the movie is that is doesn't necessarily answer the questions of what happened, and I guess that's probably because the answers are still unclear. It's heartbreaking, but it is worth the watch.

About the Author


I may not be a native, but I've been in Arizona long enough to forget what it's like back East. I moved to Tucson in the 5th grade where I graduated high school and attended the UofA. The radio bug hit me early and I was a DJ at the age of 17 in Tucson. Besides being on-air at times, my main career focus has been the behind-the-scenes programming of radio stations. I have an extensive background in music radio, in addition to working at and/or running some of the biggest and most influential radio stations in America. My radio career took me to Los Angeles, San Diego and then back to Phoenix. The chance to be back on-air, and to do it at 92.3 KTAR, was too good to pass upů so here we are! Weekends are usually reserved for racing as I own and drive my own dirt track Sprint Car all over the country. I am unmarried (never have been), childless (that I'm aware of) and don't even have any pets at this point. I do own 1 plant but the fact it has survived this long without watering leads me to believe it may be plastic. I love what I do and enjoy hosting a talk radio show for people who don't like "talk radio".
