9/11 back to product details

Interesting even though timid.

Well photgraphed and edited. Shies away from questioning the official view that the fires caused the collapse of the WTC towers (and building 7) despite testimony to the contrary in the interviews in this film.

It is clear none of the firefighters expected the collapse. There are many mentions of explosions; one firefighter mentions sequential explosions at each floor. Mentioned but not commented on in any way is that WTC 2 collapsed first even though it was hit second.

Also no mention that the much larger WTC fire in 1975 didn't cause a collapse, nor that there has never been a collapse of steel frame building due to fire, either before or since 9/11.

Be sure to watch the full interviews in the DVD extras; there's an especially interesting one where one of the firefighters says there weren't any desks or computers in the rubble; the largest piece he found was half a telephone keypad.

Eerie and moving

A stunning film. One of the filmmakers was in the towers only moments after the first plane hit. The close-up action of the horror and the confusion is unforgettable. Particularly eerie is the sound of the bodies of those who jumped as they hit nearby. As one firefighter put it: "How bad must it have been up there if the better option was to jump?"
