THREE-HANKY THURSDAY - UNITED 93


It's actually 93-hanky Thursday. Poor James.


An unparalleled example of a film that makes you cry without actually trying to make you cry. It's just kind of inevitable that you will, such is the strength of the filmmaking. Paul Greengrass' astonishingly gripping film is as realistic a depiction of the fate of the fourth plane on 9/11 as you could wish to see, and the emotional force of the film is only intensified by Greengrass' staunch realism, as he refuses the opportunity to wring those tears out of you, knowing that they're bound to erupt all the same. An exceptional film.
