Matt Roloff is the patriarch in TLC's reality TV show, "Little People, Big World". A reality star himself, Matt felt he had to share his review of the documentary, "Free Solo". Actually, he mentioned that as he is a reality star, the movie took on a "very special meaning". The National Geographic Film trailer notes that the documentary is made by "filmmaker E. Chai Vasarhelyi and world-renowned photographer and mountaineer Jimmy Chin".

'Little People, Big World's' Matt Roloff spoke about Alex Honnold's feat

"Free Solo" is the story about Alex Honnold, a free-climber, who wanted to conquer the giant rock known as El Capitan in the Yosemite National Park, USA. The 3,200ft (975m) rock rises sheer up into the sky, and Alex dreamed of climbing it one day - without the use of any ropes. Since it was made, the documentary was nominated for an Oscar for Best Documentary Feature.

In fact, this week the Free Solo won the Cinema Audio Society award for best sound in the Motion picture, documentary category.

Voa News reported that "The extreme danger of Honnold’s climb and the ever-present possibility of death causes great fear for those around Honnold in the film. Even an extremely small misstep of his foot or misplacement of a finger could have sent Honnold falling to his death." Matt Roloff certainly picked up on that, saying, "I was squirming in my chair, hyperventilating and moved to tears".
