Ok, so we all got some favorite ski movies; TBC, Session 1242, Long Story Short and so on.
But seriously, Mutiny. No ski movie has ever been made that way. Everything seems fucking miserable and no one seems to enjoy what they're doing. Every other production company is trying to make us feel like skiing is the most fun thing ever, skiing street is the most fun thing ever and skiing pow is the most fun thing ever. Sure, skiing is probably the best thing you can do, but it sure as hell isn't fun all the time.
Skiing street is pretty damn awesome but it's also frustrating as hell. Seriously, it's frustrating as hell. Building shit that doesn't work out as you planned, slamming your stupid face into concrete and trying to get a trick but you just suck a little to much to get it on film. Mutiny kinda showcase all of that, the struggle to get the shot, the misery of getting hurt and damn it's so fucking disgusting when they cut into Shea Flynns shoulder.
It's actually not as miserable as it sounds, Sheah has shoulder surgery(did that), Owens fucks up his knee and Cam Riley is "worried for his sanity at times"(wait what and who fucking isn't?). This might be a little to pretentious but who cares. It's so different from anything we've ever seen and it's so well put together. Even when there's a shitty shot of someone doing something it just makes sense in the movie and it all just comes together.
And the riding. Claytons part in Mutiny has to be the best street skiing ever done(maybe the best skiing ever done) and Sean Jordan is pretty damn good and Cam Riley is pretty damn crazy and Shea Flynn skis damn good even though I liked his 86 seggy a lil bit more. They found so many great spots to showcase the best of every skier.
And hey, they even put some ambient music in two seggys and its really great! Did you ever see that before?
I guess what I'm trying to say is that Mutiny got a lot of hype, but it damn sure deserves more!
Skiing isn't all about fun all the time and it sure as hell isn't about making everything about skiing look super fun to a super fun song.
TL;DR I'm drunk and I really like Mutiny
