Man on Wire

This is my favorite heist movie of 2008! The awesome documentary Man on Wire is about tightrope walker Philippe Petit and how he with the help of friends sneaked into the World Trade Center in 1974 and performed a high wire act between the Twin Towers.

The film had me from the very start. The movie plays like a heist film including all the planning, suspense, and mistakes that may botch the entire operation. Brilliant moviemaking from director James Marsh. Marsh lets us get to know Philippe really well, so by the time you see this daredevil on the wire, you feel that you know him and understand his passion.

Man on Wire is a great movie that is now playing at the Moxie.

Go see it! B- Enjoy!! ~Caleb
