This past weekend my BF Netflix delivered yet another fantastic movie! This time a documentary about the ultimate thrill seeker, a man named Philippe Petit, who attempted the impossible. The film is called Man on Wire and chronicles Philippe's dream to tight rope walk between the two towers of New York City's World Trade Center.
The film is edited and narrated in a way that keeps your heart pounding and palms sweating for the entire 90 minutes of the film.
The images of the now destroyed twin towers are odd and amazing to see, in a world where those buildings now symbolize great tragedy. In this film, the twin towers represent one man's personal quest to fulfill a dream.
In addition to the exciting film, the disc also has great special features including a in depth interview with Philippe in present day.
Man on Wire is an absolute must see.
