Use your imagination....not the docudrama

This docudrama is an important piece of American history which no one will ever forget. It brings us much closer to the events on flight 93, the plane which failed in its attempt to massacre the Capitol building in Washington D.C. due to the heroic efforts of passengers and crew. This is it's strength. Its weakness is the films attempt to well over-dramatize the aftermath of human feelings and emotions with pieces of dream-like sequences of the passengers while having voice-overs from family and friends. Just watching and listening to their honesty in their faces and eyes was needed here - nothing more. The writers thought that cutting away from family member interviews to heaven-like dramatizations would enhance the effect on us, then we end up just wondering why it's being "styled." Its blunders aside, the film educated me not only on this memorable day, but the strength of the human spirit. The mixture of the ordeal and family interviews, which help us to learn about these heroes, is wove together nicely. Despite the outcome of this horrific day and the terrors the world has endured, this docudrama is an important one, and one we should view with pride.
