Man on Wire

Man on Wire
this is a documentary and won like 20+ awards for : Best Documentary in 2008

FYI, for those who saw the Oscar's, there was a guy (Philippe Petit's) that balanced the oscar's on his nose, that was them for winning the Man on Wire documentary.

Back in 1974, few guys planned to walk across the World Trade center (WTC) (1350 feet up in the air) Took the tightrope walker Philippe Petit's a long time to plan, and then he attached two ropes across and did his routine.

That's pretty much it. It was an easy watch but make sure you get sub titles for this cause 2 of the people being interviewed speak french, although a good film, it woudl have been great if I subtitles.

This was back 1970s, where security wasn't as crazy as now, people were more free and more relaxed. Imagine, someone trying to even go up the highest floors of the WTC, you would be jailed before you even get to some unrestricted floors. A good watch. it was done beautifully, music was good, and it was a nicely done documentary, great for all ages.

8.5 / 10 (cause it's a documentary, as much as I enjoyed it, i didn't 'learn' anything from it, there was a wow factor. Some documentary, like michael moore's sicko, bowling for columbine, those, i've learnt a lot, this one was just a cool easy watch).
Arguing on the internet is like running in the SPECIAL OLYMPICS.

Even if you win, you're still retarded.
