Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: The United States of America: rich, diverse, well-fed, proud, free. The United States of America: poor, hungry, scared, oppressed.

Deals with 9/11 with heart, compassion and scepticism
21 November 2004 | by (Portland, Oregon) – See all my reviews

There are few enough films that really deal with this event, fewer still that deal with it on a truly personal level. Choosing to deal, not with the impact of 9/11 so much on New York, The nation or the world, but on the individual level of each person that Rose comes in contact with. It seems to be a journey of discovery, digging deeper than the immediate reaction to the tragedy. Getting past the move toward patriotism or conversely, cynicism and getting into what people feel is the behind the event. How do we look at the larger context of this catastrophe, resolve not to tread down the path of fear and learn from the mistakes of America's past. Rose asks the tough question, "How have the things we have done encouraged such attacks against us?" Almost no one out there has been willing to ask that question or the other questions the film poses about what will we sacrifice to regain the illusion of safety.
