NEIL YOUNG
THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

unassumingly inspirational

A compelling celebration of an unorthodox, complex and troubled character


KEVIN MAHER The Times

FOUR STARS

Streetpulls no punches and intersperses Obree’s bike-construction montages with sometough love deconstruction of an incredibly complex personality

Splendid Graeme Obree documentary


MAX GLASKIN 
 Cycling Weekly

A must-see. It is inspiring, funny and frightening.

A film that pretty much everyone will enjoy

Frankly,this is a documentary that has to be seen to be believed. If anyone in Hollywood had written it the script would have been rejected because of the incredible number of ridiculous twists and turns. And nobody could write the jokes that come out of Obree’s mouth at the unlikeliest moments.

Rating:4/5

wonderfully comic moments

BattleMountain is an enthralling, funny and ultimately joyous addition to the pantheon of against-the-odds sports stories.

Graeme Obree’s life is cinematic gold.

He’s compulsively honest – endearingly enthusiastic


DAN CARRIER

Four Stars

This entertaining documentary follows inventor-slash-former-cycling-champion Graeme Obree

A brilliantly watchable character, he is a nice guy who actually has come first.

Add to this the intriguing spectacle of him building, Wallace and Gromit-style, a bicycle and what’s not to like?

RICH CLINE

Shadows on the Wall

Review 4/5 

Utterly riveting, both as a profile of an extraordinarily talented man and as a look at what it takes to be the best in the world.

TOM CARY
The Telegraph

Splendid stuff. 
Inspiring, moving and, for large parts, extremely uncomfortable viewing.

Street handles this area sensitively and compassionately, although it is still a difficult watch at times, particularly as we get nearer to the record attempt and Obree is showing signs of mental fatigue.


CATH CLARKE
TIME OUT

An eccentric genius, Obree is a joy to watch, funny, obsessive and complex; he talks with heartfelt honesty about his struggles with depression and coming out as gay in 2011.


JONATHAN ROMNEY 
THE GUARDIAN

 Eccentric Pedal Power

A celebration of British maverick eccentricity

An engaging watch, and Street’s own camera work provides attractive polish.


Nigel Andrews
 FinancialTimes

Endearing sports lunacy’

you will cheer one of the last cries for British or Scottish eccentricity.


BRIAN VINER  
DAILY MAIL

Bravery,determination, and a certain foolhardiness combine in a stirring sporting tale,


ANOTHER CYCLIST

Comedy gold.

Hilarious for the first half, edge of the seat nail biter by the end.

a unique man with unique talents, a very entertaining film.

The best film of the year

Battle Mountain is one of the best cycling movies i have ever had the good fortune to witness.

As marvellous as it is entertaining.

there are many film releases touted as 'the ultimate feel good movie', but Battle Mountain beats them all hands down.
