by James Marsh. 2008. 94 min.
In an enthralling and symbolic display of spellbinding courage, Philippe Petit famously and illegally tightrope walks across the 1974 yet-to-be-opened World Trade Center. With themes of perseverance and personal achievement, Man On Wire is also a subtle but beautiful portrait of the Twin Towers: pillars of the NYC skyline.
