United 93

Saw "United 93" again the other day with my Lower 6th Film Studies students. Has to be one of the best films of the last few years. Traumatic, but so well made and the tension builds up brilliantly, even though you know what's going to happen. The pseudo-documentary style here works wonderfully. No coincidence it was directed by a Brit! It is the antithesis of the Hollywood hanky-fest that was "World Trade Centre" (or am I being a bit harsh :-)
