If you would ask me how I felt after I saw United 93, I would say: I felt like if somebody had hit me very hard in my stomach. More than once. I had problems breathing and I couldn’t move the first 5 minutes after the film.
If you can handle that, you should see this film. Filmmaking doesn’t get any better than this.
Tagline: A real time account of the events on United Flight 93, one of the planes hijacked on 9/11 that crashed near Shanksville, Pennsylvania when passengers foiled the terrorist plot.
Directed by Paul Greengrass (a Brit, you might know him from Bloody Sunday or the Bourne Supremacy)

Stumbled across your post via a common Technorati tag.
I shared your reaction to U93…I wish more people would experience it for themselves, rather than get caught up in the controversy surrounding it.
We agree, too, on the merits of “Girl in the Cafe” (also underseen and underappreciated) and Mr. Nighy.
Coffee is a different matter, though!
@NYCinephile : Reviews or controversy discussions about films will never keep me from watching a movie. I actually think I want to see films more when they are controvert. And U93 is just to good to miss.
Good to hear you appreciate both The Girl In The Cafe and Mr. Nighy! (He’s in the US promoting Gideon’s Daughter at the moment by the way)
About Coffee, even though I love Cafe’s, and the people in them, I never learned to appreciate coffee. I just don’t like the taste. Luckily in the UK, tea is available everywhere too :-)
