For me, this is what cinema is all about, and this film is striking in that it encapsulates so much in a documentary. Man On Wire has more suspense, thrills, wonder, imagination, human spirit and inspiration than any other film I have seen in recent years. The music, composition and photography, structure and editing are all superb. Some of the shots are simply breathtaking. Some scenes in the film are incredibly atmospheric, and they will be forever burned in your mind. The film captures a human sense of achievement, drive and determination better than any other film I know. Heres the ultimate proof of this films power - the audience didn't shift until a good couple of minutes into the credits.

Considering that "Man on Wire" won the Oscar for Best Documentary Feature, I was expecting a lot from this film. Sadly, while a decent film, it certainly was no especially memorable or transcendent. It's watchable and competently made but that's really about all.
This film is about a man named Petite who is insane about walking on the tightrope. One of his exploits involved walking on a cable hastily strung between the two towers of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, but this wasn't enough. When he learned about the Twin Towers begin built in New York in the 1970s, he was determined to talk between them as well. But, Petite wasn't about to ask permission (he probably wasn't about to receive it) and with a group of friends he planned to sneak onto the property and to this stunt. Much of the film is about the planning of the walk as well as the walk itself.
Overall, while a decent film, I didn't particularly like Petite--who seemed like a self-absorbed guy who used his friends. Because of this, it was hard to really care about his stunt. However, the film was well made--quite competent and well constructed. Not a film I'd rush to recommend but worth a look.
By the way, surprisingly the film has a bit of nudity--just be forewarned.
This film should have never have been created. It is awful, I am currently watching it and I can tell you right now that suicide is a option worth considering. It doesn't even get to the actual incident until the final minutes. The rest of it is listening to some self-absorbed French lunatic talk about how he played hide and seek in his mid-30s. The fact that this won an Oscar is a joke. If I was still President, this type of blasphemy would not be acceptable in society. If this film actually portrayed the walk from tower to tower it would take a maximum of 30 minutes. This however, has been dragged out for 90 minutes and personally I want those 90 minutes of my life back. Thank you for reading my fellow Americans.
