shot more like a heist film than a documentary, it capitalizes on the main character’s unique personality, and the intricacies of the plot itself. the plot follows the events leading up to and following the time when petit strings a wire between the two wtc buildings and walks across it. the level of planning and technical considerations that went into the stunt is more than one might think and makes it all the more interesting. petit is a bit loopy, but that’s probably necessary for the deed to have succeeded. it’s a fun documentary and it provides a light contrast to the planning and subterfuge that was involved with another wtc event.
