I was surprised how much I enjoyed this, this man is an artist of the unusual kind.
This documentary really did exceed my expectations and turned out to be truly astonishing to me, I even felt good after watching this, what I loved about the man was his desire to rebel against the law buts in a non violent or unpleasant way. It is so good this documentary because it is so hard to believe anyone would do this, the thing is one mistake and he would have been a dead man, but to be messing about on a wire between the brilliant twin towers for 45 mins and 8 crossings in that time is really quite amazing. How anyone could be so relaxed up so high to do that is beyond belief. Of course it does seem silly for anyone to put themselves into such a high risk (literally), but when you watch this documentary it is kind of easy to understand why the man did it, one man in particular was quite emotional about it and so was his former wife. I only wish there were video footage of this man doing this, it really made my day watching this documentary. The mans desire to beat the challenge and rebel was quite appealing to me, I highly recommend this and also on blu ray it isn't expensive on blu ray only a pound odds more I would say it is definitely worth it. A documentary with a difference, something different fro the norm and a nice way to remember the twin towers unlike the depressing thing that happened there, after watching this documentary I can honestly say I love this guy.

 Awesome Documentary of an amazing feat

Really cool film, nicly mix of interviews, reinactments and archive footage. Not a huge deal to watch on blu-ray v DVD but a great film none the less
