Arctic

I must recommend a survival story film I enjoyed last night. Arctic is an incredible story.

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6820256/

I'm not recommending because it was great but because it is the first time I've seen a survival story where the hero does everything right. It's not the usual stranded archetype. This guy clearly knows what he is doing. It takes someone experienced in cold weather to see but at every turn he makes the best choices in an incredibly grim situation.

Be warned it is essentially one man against the elements so there is little dialogue beyond him cursing his luck but if there was a manual for arctic survival you could do worse than watching this movie.

I'm avoiding all spoilers and his decisions and tactics are what make the film. He does a couple things I wouldn't think of.
