Genre: Documentary Rating: PG-13 Trailer: Click here The Film - On August 7th 1974, a young Frenchman named Philippe Petit stepped out on a wire illegally rigged between New York's twin towers, then the world’s tallest buildings. After nearly an hour dancing on the wire, he was arrested, taken for psychological evaluation, and brought to jail before he was finally released. James Marsh’s documentary brings Petit’s extraordinary adventure to life through the testimony of Philippe himself, and some of the co-conspirators who helped him create the unique and magnificent spectacle that became known as “the artistic crime of the century.” The Verdict - As far as documentaries go, Man On Wire takes a proverbial leap of faith, with its eyes closed, into the world of unfathomable dare devil stories, that'll have you sitting on the edge of your seat, and all in its stride. This gravity and death defying inspirational tale of French tight rope walker, Philippe Petit could be considered as one of highly strung fiction or that of an aging urban legend. But make no mistake, there is no camera trickery or SFX to be found here. Only a sheer 1368 foot drop and a hair of wire separated Philippe and the harsh New York City sidewalk. Although Philippe was cut short of completing his decent, he was rewarded with much public admiration for his spectacular show of courage. With his fearless features plastered all over the media, many questioned why any one would be so foolish as to try such a stunt like this and as a result Philippe's mental health was to questioned. Though in the end Philippe would finish stronger then he had set out, in proving, rather triumphantly, that it wasn't a matter of how he couldn't get the job done but a matter of how he was the only man brave enough to try. A gripping tale of a man who was seemingly born without wings. Check it out!
