The Best Documentaries of 2023

Vogue

As a documentary subject, free diving has the death-defying lunacy of big-wave surfing and the cosmopolitan appeal of Formula 1. And in the Italian free-diving champion Alessia Zecchini, The Deepest Breath has a vibrant heroine who is beautiful and tragically monomaniacal. This gripping movie tells her story and follows her blossoming love affair with the Irish safety diver Stephen Keenan, who runs a free-dive training facility in Dahab, Egypt, where Zecchini goes to train. Their affair gives poignant momentum to The Deepest Breath, which is fascinated with athletic obsession. Tragedy, when it comes, is all but inevitable.
