Man on Wire is one of the best 2008 films I've seen. The story is exciting, interesting and even funny, at times. If you didn't see The Colbert Report last week, then you may not know that the film concerns the "artistic crime of the century." In August 1974, just as Nixon was about to resign the presidency, Phillipe Petit walked across a wire between the tops of the World Trade Center Towers.
Though I haven't seen any of the film's Oscar competitors for Best Documentary Feature, it must be a strong competitor.
Thumbs up. See it.
