Reagan and I killed off both of our Netflix movies pretty quickly, this weekend. So, we turned to the instant queue and watched “Man on Wire.” This movie is CRAZY. It is about Philip Petit, and his dream to walk a tightrope between the WTC towers. I was marginally interested, from the outset, but once we got into it, I was blown away. The sheer logistics of setting up the wire without being caught were so daunting, that it made the tightrope walking itself almost seem anti-climactic. That is, until you remember that it is a dude 1 mile high, walking a freaking wire! I was also pleasantly surprised to see how many photos, and how much movie footage they had, preserving the original event. I was expecting it to be like one of those dramatic re-enactment, reminiscent of Court TV style documentaries. In all honesty, there are a few parts of the film that do incorporate that type of cheesiness. But for the most part, it is mind-blowing to watch a group of French hippies pull this thing off.
