      Tom Long Detroit News You may find "Sunshine Superman" exhilarating or you may find "Sunshine Superman" terrifying, but you almost surely will not find it boring. Rated: B Jul 28, 2015 Full Review Josh Kupecki Austin Chronicle Sunshine Superman is at times a bit too reverent with the material, and there are distracting reenactments ( la The Jinx and Man on Wire), some of which seem extraneous, but overall, the film is a sun-kissed tribute to a singular individual. Rated: 3/5 Jun 11, 2015 Full Review Bruce DeMara Toronto Star Engrossing, tension-filled and utterly fascinating. Rated: 3.5/4 Jun 9, 2015 Full Review Michael J. Casey Boulder Weekly The footage is spectacular, and the big screen is the perfect place to convey that majesty. Jun 30, 2019 Full Review Morgan Rojas Cinemacy [Director] Marah Strauch captures here not only arresting visuals, she effortlessly sums up emotions, and extremely inspiring ones at that. Nov 9, 2018 Full Review Pat Padua DCist Thrilling not just from its subject's charisma and death-defying feats, but from the inventive and terrifying process of filming a jump.

      Audience Member The greatest 01 hour: and 40 minutes ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member A sweet documentary on Carl Boenish, an ordinary guy with pioneering thoughts & abilities. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member This was a very interesting look into the history of Base jumping. Even though a lot of the film footage is old, it still looks incredible. This documentary is bittersweet, but I think it earns itself at least one watch. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member I enjoyed this one and the stories the told of early adventures in BASE jumping Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member High flying, adored. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Thrilling documentary, but I will never understand the pleasure of jumping off of a cliff.
