Movie Reviews

City Pages, Minneapolis/St. Paul - 10/10 by Jim Ridley Part caper movie, part real-life superhero saga, and entirely engrossing.
Arizona Republic - 10/10 by Richard Nilsen It is one of the most suspenseful, white-knuckled films of the year.
Los Angeles Times - 10/10 by Kenneth Turan This is a police procedural, if you will, about what's been called the artistic crime of the century.
The Australian - 10/10 by Evan Williams Marsh uses a combination of interviews, film of Petit as a young man, authentic newsreels and enacted reconstructions to produce an unforgettable experience.
The Trend - 10/10 by Stephen Silver Are these people inspiring, talented stars, pursuing a difficult and dangerous athletic feat, or are there they disturbed nuts with a death wish? The film doesn't judge and doesn't take sides.
Seattle Times - 10/10 by Moira MacDonald Man on Wire should be watched on the biggest screen possible; it's an utterly thrilling exploration of one man's mad dream.
Boston Globe - 10/10 by Ty Burr The sight is magical and heartbreaking in equal measure. Look, the movie says: Where so many would fall, a man walks on air.
The Age (Australia) - 10/10 by Sandra Hall Marsh stitches his story together with a seamless melding of interviews, stills, re-enactments and archival footage augmented by a wonderful score by Michael Nyman and the New York composer J. Ralph.
ComingSoon.net - 10/10 by Edward Douglas One of the most amazing cinematic experiences and achievements in terms of recreating a single event in history in the most comprehensive way.
Chicago Sun-Times - 10/10 by Roger Ebert Man on Wire is about the vanquishing of the towers by bravery and joy, not by terrorism.
San Francisco Chronicle - 10/10 by Reyhan Harmanci Man on Wire, the delightful documentary about French tightrope walker Philippe Petit's incroyable early-morning trip between the World Trade Center towers in 1974, is an interesting film to watch from the front row.
Baltimore Sun - 10/10 by Michael Sragow This movie about Petit's achievement is a gust of fresh air, offering the inner workings of a lark that put a man's life at risk -- and also made him immortal.
