Man on Wire
Saturday, September 6th, 2008
Last night we went to see Man on Wire, the movie about Philippe Petit, the guy who tightrope walked between the two towers of the World Trade Center in 1974. It’s a stunning, sad, funny, inspiring, nostalgic tribute to the WTC, NYC and Petit and his accomplices.
The movie is more understated than the trailer… but it gives some sense of the spectacle.
“Man on Wire” were the words written on Petit’s booking form in the field for “infraction.”
