Beautiful Images Of The Statue
5 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of Burns' earliest documentaries, there are strikingly beautiful images of The Statue of Liberty. Burns does a great job showing the Statue in different light and angles. I particularly enjoy his images of the Statue at sunset and the one that shows a panoramic view of the New York harbor, including the Twin Towers.

Like all Burns films, a great array of interviews from well known Americans to immigrants is included. I particularly like Mario Cuomo's views of the Statue as well as James Baldwin's.

I watched instantly on Netflix to kill and hour and possibly learn something. It accomplished both. Rating 7 of 10 stars.
