Commemorating 9/11 On Screen…

Commemorating 9/11 On Screen...

First, if you live in New York City, TONIGHT, at 7:45PM, the Walter Reade theater at Lincoln Center in Manhattan, will be screening Spike Lee’s 25th Hour – the first major motion picture shot on location in New York after September 11, 2001.

And to get you even more interested in attending the screening, you should know that Spike Lee, Edward Norton, Philip Seymour Hoffman and producer Jon Kilik will be present for a discussion to follow the screening!

Second, while we’re at it, how about you give your short list of 9/11 movies – from Paul Greengrass’ United 93 to Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11, and everything else, narrative feature or documentary; even animation or short.

And lastly, this below video seemed like a simple yet poignant reminder: Twin Tower cameos in movies – 1969 To 2001; 1969 being the year construction began; 2001 being the year they were destroyed. How many of the films used here can you name?
