This is the 9/11 film that everyone would be better off for seeing.
There are so many 9/11 documentaries and tributes out there. I've been addicted to watching them, even though I feel most of them say the same thing and I don't learn or feel anything new. While all of them are important testimonies, none are as authentic, as visceral, as beautiful as SITE in my opinion. This film works both as a piece of art and as an honest documentary that illustrates a moment in time without making judgement or injecting excessive or superficial emotion into it. It's haunting and peaceful. It's beautiful and tragic. It's that nameless feeling that we all felt at some point post 9/11. I was really impressed with the "hands off" feeling the filmmaker used that made it feel like the audience's film while watching it, versus the interpretation of a director. We become the faces we are watching. We identify and empathize with all of them and we feel how truly human we all are.
