Parkour & Free Running? Oh, THAT’s easy!
When asked about her dancing with Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers once remarked that she did everything he did. Only backwards. And in high heels.
Watching this new Danny MacAskill film gives me the same feeling about Parkour & free running. Surely it’d be more challenging (and impressive?) if anyone could do it on a bike . . .
What I love about Danny’s films (apart from the way they induce slack-jawed amazement in any audience) is the gorgeous way they’re filmed and the brilliant soundtracks - not always my cup-of-tea-listening, but just perfect for these films.
Oh - I also like that he takes his role model status so seriously, and obeys "Cyclists Dismount" signs !
