Tragic and Compelling
4 September 2002 | by AltimaSee all my reviews

There's little doubt that September 11th was a horrifyingly tragic event of enormous significance, one wonders how modern enlightened times could see such an act. But the advantage of these modern times is that this particular event was widely photographed and recorded. What personally surprised me about it was their use of sound, as the planes hit and as the towers collapsed, one hears the reactions of the onlookers. It adds a human element. The mayor of New York offers a large amount of insight over the course of the film, and there's plenty of footage of him viewing the events unfolding before his eyes. It gives me even more respect for him seeing him at the "front lines" so to speak of the disaster. All of the most haunting elements are present: Clear shots of the giant explosions as the planes impacted, huge pillars of dust as the towers collapse, the aftermath: ghostly figures wandering an unrecognizable Manhattan when visibility is about 5 feet. It is depressing, but essential viewing. Ten Stars. It was a shocking experience witnessing history unfold, and it was also a horrifying experience. Watch it to see the greatest disaster of our time, and watch it to appreciate the disasters of the past, so we don't repeat them.
