backtrack; United 93 (2006)


Subtle though still highly suspenseful dramatization of the unsuccessful fourth 9/11 attack, thwarted by passengers of the hijacked plane that gave the film its title. Presented in real-time with high ambitions of factual and historical accuracy, including the cooperation of the families left behind.

Commendable, decent, poignant tribute to unwilling heroes, refreshingly free from Hollywood sensationalism. In my inevitable book of honourable anti-terrorism.
