Man on Wire (2008)

Man on Wire (2008) — Phillipe Petit is insane.  Watching him interviewed in this movie it also becomes apparent that he is somewhat of an egomaniac.  It doesn’t matter.  What he did was amazing and magical.  For a movie that revolves around the World Trade Center towers it never once mentions the terrorist attacks from 2001 that destroyed them.  There’s a reason for that: any asshole can knock something down, but to accomplish something incredible is what the human spirit is all about.  This is an amazing movie.
