Capering circus noir.
Captions don't count: I'm guilty of dismissing this 90-minute documentary about that guy who walked a tightrope between the World Trade Center towers in 1974. My bad. I just didn't account for how difficult it was to sneak into that place and string a cable -- turns out the rope walk was the easy part. Amid the requisite interviews with participants of the "performance crime," the movie is filled with scenes like the one above: A re-enactment of the conspirators planning their infiltration of the roof. Yes, an arrow plays a crucial role. The thriller aspects are as fascinating as the portrait of a man consumed by a wild dream -- and what happens to all the pent up emotions and frustrations after the dream is achieved. Fascinating stuff.
