The film pick of the week is the documentary Man on Wire. This film was recently released to DVD and follows a young french man Phillippe Petit as he illegally riggs a wire between the twin tower towers in NYC and then steps out onto the wire for an hour. He was arrested, taking in for psychological testing and then released. Man on a Wire follows every step of this journey and shows earlier scenes of Petit’s stunts, meetings that lead to the WTC walk, security measures and finally the hour-long walk between buildings. The film plays out like a thriller and has already garnered numerous critic’s prizes.

See the trailer:
