"Of the many artistic works that have attempted to make sense of September 11, 2001, none has captured the New York perspective of the quietly hellish aftermath of the destruction of the World Trade Center better than Clear Blue Tuesday. The musical film, which was conceived, directed, and partially written by Elizabeth Lucas...examines the tragedy itself only obliquely. It focuses instead on the long-lasting effects of that violation of national and personal security on 11 New Yorkers, and through them you come to understand the day's loss-and potential gains-in ways you couldn't even if you were surrounded by CGI explosions. That's no small feat for any dramatic presentation, let alone a low-budget film...Yet it is accomplished, with impressive clarity, seriousness, and even humor..." - Matthew Murray, New York critic Written by Matthew Murray

I avoid 9/11 movies and dislike musicals
29 March 2010 | by ratcityfilmsocietySee all my reviews

I avoid 9/11 related movies and dislike (some might say despise) musicals. That said, this 9/11 related musical charmed me. I had no idea that it had any song and dance numbers until the first one burst forth, at the perfect time. Every time the story started declining into melodrama it would go into one of these power pop musical bits that buoy the film's atmosphere just enough to re-enter a typical post-9/11ish story line. Even as I type this, I am amazed that I didn't hate this movie. I am still in awe of the treasure that was wrought by perfectly mixing two poisonous elements (only in my narrow taste), film alchemy at its finest. The stories of the survivors are heart rending and quite believable, the kind of stories that lead me to shy away from films with these themes. The songs were reminiscent of Cheap Trick, and if you are going to do a power pop musical there should be no one that you would rather be compared to. If this is what this movie did for a fervent non-believer, then anyone who has an interest in post-9/11 dramas or musicals should be absolutely thrilled.
