9/11 on Film

Rick McGinnis on 9/11 documentaries.

There was a phrase heard over and over on the day, ten years ago, and in the weeks and months afterward, from survivors and eyewitnesses, from reporters and columnists: “It looked just like a movie.” Sitting in front of my TV on that morning, as one tower fell and then the other, I just couldn’t see it.

Update: Features.

... you can count on one hand the films directly about the attacks, and neither is anything like a classic.
