Stone's WTC: Fiction And Truth

There's a very interesting review of Oliver Stone's World Trade Center over at Slate.

It's by Rebecca Liss, and it doesn't get into the film's cinemetography and script, or the 800 pound question of an antiwar, anti-American Hollywooder like Stone making this story. Instead, it focuses on the real people and the real rescues, contrasting them to the film's characterization of the story.

The review won't help you make a see/don't see decision, but if you decide to see it, you'll at least know that you're watching a distortion that falls far short of the grand heroism that really occurred on that terrible day.
