A riveting monologue from a 9/11 next-block neighbor.
12 September 2003 | by (Helsinki, Finland) – See all my reviews

I had drowsed off in front of the TV. I woke up to the voice of Horovitz telling the thoughts and feelings he'd had on 9/11. The film is mostly his face talking to you, with some stills and clips interspersed while he talks.

While this might sound boring, it is not. His razor sharp comments and discoveries of what he thought and what he experienced, starting from right before the WTC hit until a couple of weeks later just riveted me in my chair.

This is not a soggy and mushy kind of weeping about lost lives, or panicking about lost kin. Rather, it is about what an intelligent, mature, and feeling person went through in his head. And it is told in a lively and well written way.
