There's only one documentary that makes it into my Top 10 Movies along with The Graduate, Apocalypse Now, The Fugitive, Some Like It Hot, Chinatown, The Shining, 2001, Laurence Of Arabia, and The Odd Couple.
Man on Wire (the NYPD offense description on his summons) is the Oscar winning film about high-wire artist (he's no artiste) Philippe Petit and his co-conspiritors who, under cover of darkness, erect a tightrope between the World Trade Center towers.
He then proceeds to walk across the 1,340 foot drop without a safety harness.
(Photograher Jean-Louis Blondeau took some breath-taking shots of the 'Stunt of the Century' in Precarious Moments.)
More philosopher that circus-act, Petit sees every day as a work of art, and every performance an act of rebellion.
By turns poignant, uplifting, and hilarious, this piece of film allows you to believe you can reach any goal you set your mind to, however high.
Watch it now!
