(2006, Paul Greengrass)
Greengrass, a leader in the Shaky-Camera Brigade, delivers this homage to the victims and heroes surrounding the flights of September 11th, 2001. The film’s a study in humanity and its uncommon ability to take action when threatened. A bit grandiose, but always delivered with a steady documentary feel. The goods are delivered through simple storytelling and compelling camerawork.
As proven throughout his career, Greengrass continues to be one of the most important filmmakers of his time. How’s that for hyperbole?
