Well Done, 26 February 2011
Author: Mike B from Canada

This is a 2 hour documentary that looks at September 11th and the influence it has had on religion. The first 30-40 minutes is the impact on the survivors and how they have coped with this most tragic event. Even though this is important, it has also been covered in other documentaries.

From there it examines more thoroughly religious beliefs from Christian, Judaism and Muslim faiths. We see interviews with rabbis, imams, reverends/priests, plus assorted theologians. These are all very informative as they focus on the religious aspect of the hijackers and how religion was used to justify the attacks. Some conclude that religion cannot only be used for doing great deeds, but also for doing evil. As one priest said – the moment the attacks took place he knew that religion was behind it. Unfortunately individuals become so devoted – then fanatical - to their faith, that they use it as a justification for anything. One Episcopal priest was denounced by his congregation for attending a non-denominational commemorative service at Yankee stadium because there were people of other faiths present. A Muslim Imam expresses his concern about the future of his religion.

The coverage of 9/11 and the consequences for religion are very well done. I suppose one could say that the focus is just on the U.S. – but an excellent diversity of people and beliefs is presented. Given the events of that day this film is emotionally gripping.
