Man on Wire2008 | James Marsh
A look at tightrope walker Philippe Petit's daring, but illegal, high-wire routine performed between New York City's World Trade Center's twin towers in 1974, what some consider, "the artistic crime of the century."

|Very good documentary. I had heard about this phenomnon. But I actually thought it was something that happened recently. Well the movie gives a very good description of how Philippe Petit in 1974 sneaked into the twin towers and put a wire between them and then wlaked between the to towers for 45 minutes.
It's all about a man who does what he dreams about. I makes you feel like you should do more to persue your own dreams. Kind of like Into The Wild did for me...
8 of 10 for moving experience in best documentary style.
