GHOST OF THE MOUNTAINS (2017)

Another of the Disneynature films, this one focuses on the snow leopard in the Himalayas. Rarely seen, a team spends months in China trying to capture a few moments of the cat on film. The problem with this documentary is that they really didn’t have enough footage to make a whole movie. There is a lot of fluff to help fill it out but that left us feeling a little bored. The team even expresses how little they were actually able to catch of the snow leopard and how difficult it was. What they were able to capture, however, was really interesting. They found a mother and her two cubs and were able to give the audience a brief glimpse into their lives. So while we greatly admire the team for their hard work and dedication to capture what they did, it just wasn’t enough to make a really captivating documentary. I think it would have been better if it was shorter.
