Review

The documentary is creativily modeled after heist films but is not as immersive as it could have been. Because of the subject matter the film doesn't turns boring, and there are some good moments in the interview to Petit.

A great movie

In 2015, they will release a fictional version of this movie directed by Robert Zemeckis and starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and even though I should be really excited by this movie, I’m not, and I have in fact some really mixed feelings about this project. The point is that, before watching this documentary, I thought I would like the damned thing but I didn't expect to love it so much. Indeed, I... read more

This documentary (nominated for Best Doc for the Independent Spirit Awards) explores the preparations that went into the stunt as well as the event and its aftermath. Obsessed with the towers even before ... (more)

New York movies:The 100 best films set in New York (100 movies items)

"Brit documentarian James Marsh enshrines the rogue-immigrant romance of New York in French equilibrist Philippe Petit, who sneaked to the top of the newly built World Trade Center in 1974 and enjoyed a death-defying tightrope walk between the Twin Towers’ lofty heights. Not even terrorists can erase this city’s most lyrical expression of skylarking.—Stephen Garrett"

Elokuvapäiväkirjuli 2012 (235 movies items)

"13/12/2012 Aivan kertakaikkisen upea dokumentti taiteilijan vapaudesta ja rajoja rikkovasta innostuksesta. Dramatisoidut takaumat toimivat hienosti, mutta kaikkein kauneimmillaan elokuva on aitoa arkistomateriaalia näyttäessään Philippen harjoituksista ja itse suorituksesta. Henkeäsalpaava kauneus tuo tunteita pintaan ja Philippen kylmäpäisyyttä ja intohimoa voi vain ihailla. Haastattelumateriaali on erinomaista ja näyttää loistavasti Philippen persoonan tänäpäivänäkin."

Dear Cinema Diary - Vol 3 E9a - etc 2012 (76 movies items)

"Oct 6th - First Viewing A very interesting documentary. How the film was shot and put together was superb. Trying to capture a moment in time and the grand beautiful meaningless of a perfect moment is a noble effort. The film left me with quite a bit to think about and some things aren't fully explained... still this is perhaps more of a positive aspect then I'm giving the film credit for."

"First viewing - Jan. 8th Weird, weirder and weirdest documentaries by johanlefourbe First off I have to say "thank you!" to johanlefourbe & Xanadon't for bringing this documentary to my attention. I also have to thank Netflix for removing it from instant so I watched it now rather than continuing to procrastinate on it. I was hooked from the start by the story & loved the way it was told in a non-linear fashion. I can only think of a couple things that would have made the film perfect, but per"
