Surprisingly great

Wow! Until I got towards the end, I just thought this was the profile of a down-on-his-luck guy. Excellent documentary.

Powerful and beautifully filmed

This documentary inspired me and touched me deeply. About the only thing I have in common with Iditarod racers is that I love dogs. After watching this true story about Lance Mackey I have become a fan not only of Lance but of Iditarod. Something about Lance's humble and genuine nature and the struggles he has endured moved me to my core. Iditarod, it turns out, is about much more than racing dogs over 1000 miles. It is about overcoming a grueling environment and personal demons, it is about beauty and it is about the deep bond between man and man's best friend. I watched it 5 times.

Interesting, but...

...I feel sorry for the dogs. Just too harsh for them. In my humble opinion.

This is NOT about snow dogs. It's about a true Alaskan sport.

This is a wonderful movie about an amazing man. Lance Mackey has lived a very tough life & has endured to become a champion dog musher. He gives all the credit to his dogs. A true musher. Loved this movie. The scenery is spectacular.
