3. Man On Wire
This is a docudrama of a spectacular, and crazy achievement. It is the story of Phillipe Petit, a French street performer, who also has other exceptional skills. One of which happened to be as a wire-walker. In 1974 he decided he wanted to walk on a wire between the, then incomplete, World Trade Center Towers.
With a cast of characters enlisted to help him succeed, he starts planning and training to accomplish this mission. Using much of the real footage and pictures taken when this event actually happened, mixed with restaging of other events, director James Marsh recreates the scene in a brilliant manner. The task of setting up the wire without detection was very difficult. All the things involved are like an Oceans Eleven type of heist. This makes for a real exciting thriller.
