Even non-epinephrine freaks can get into Adrenaline Rush: The Science of Risk.
The 2004 adventure film, a dream for adventure weirdos, is also a visual orgasm for those who fancy looking at pretty things. In the movie, skydiving and BASE jumping are dissected through urgent cinematography that includes views of the Florida Keys, the Mojave Desert, and the fjords of Norway. Many of the shots were documented by in-action professional jumpers and include footage of a 4,265-foot leap off a Norwegian cliff (crazy muthas) and a couple of thrill-seeking monsters doing an insane stunt in a Leonardo da Vinci-designed parachute (bloody hell).
Starts: Nov. 17. Daily, 12, 2 & 4 p.m., 2010
