World Trade Center

Oliver Stone garnered praise for abandoning conspiracy theories in favor of a story about courage. Nicolas Cage is a police officer trapped in the rubble of 9/11. He and his buddy are rescued after baring their souls. Emphasis is placed on their families. Action is at street level. Only the shadow of the first plane against a building is shown as it flies toward the WTC. Stone's subtlety works. There was not a dry eye in the house. I recall the morning of September 11, 2001. I woke up at 6 A.M. I went into the bathroom, looked in the mirror and decided to shave my head. I had never done that before. I cut my hair off, shaved my head, went back to bed and went to sleep. The phone rang. It was my mother. She was crying. She said, "They've hit New York. They've hit Washington, D.C." I thought, "My God! We're in a nuclear war with China." I was actually relieved when I found out what happened.
