I saw the movie first. Love it. The directing, cinematography, music and acting are superb. I think Danny Boyle deserves another Oscar nod. And so does James Franco.
I am so moved by the perseverance and stamina of Aron Ralston that I had to read his memoir to relive his tormenting experience. Surprisingly, he writes very well. This candid account of his entrapment in the Blue John Canyon is a brilliant autobiography and an ultimate celebration of strength, dignity and humanity.
