The Bridge

3

Suicide isn’t painless in this sombre, borderline ghoulish doc about The Golden Gate Bridge. More than just a tourist attraction, it’s the most popular suicide spot in the world. With the help of a long-lens camera, filmmaker Eric Steel shoots a year’s worth of jumpers as they calmly take the plunge to their deaths. It’s all captured in snuff-movie verité, raising enough ethical questions to pad out a university thesis. Meanwhile, interviews with family and witnesses count the human cost. Morbid and deeply troubling, it will make you cherish this mortal coil.
