Yes, people were talking about Man on Wire on Letsrun earlier in the year and I found it on Netflix and watched it.
That whole thing was just crazy.
The logistics of sneaking up both sides of the twin towers throughout the middle of the night and just executing the part of shooting the wire from one tower to the next was amazing.
And dealing with watch guards at the same time.
Then walking across with instant death looming, crowds looking up, helicopters observing and police waiting ...
If this were a scripted movie, it would still have been pretty good.
But the fact that it actually happened and they showed some real footage was fascinating.
Even though you know he lives (he talked in the movie, therefore he lives), you feel nervous watching it.
They did a good job with the movie.
Yes, the stunt itself is interesting but what really makes the movie is the passion that the people have (both Phillippe and his support team) and the outstanding job the filmmaker does with interviewing, editing, and making that come across to the audience.
