"United 93"

The first "big" film on 9/11 seems to have satisfied everyone.So, how do you accomplish a 90% "freshness" in the "rotten tomatoes" tomatometer?
The easy response is that Paul Greengrass's artistic approach was neither artistic nor approach.But that's not really true.The "reconstructed" pseudo-documentaristic style served to hide the fact that every step of the way, Greengrass was making choices,from the subject matter to small details like the pic of the Capitol the terrorist was displaying in the cockpit, as a subliminal wink to the audience that "that's where they were heading".
The fact that all these choices were surrounded by tons of trivial "real time" air-control details, (acted out for extra realism by several of the actual staff playing "themselves"),kinda makes this approach a tiny bit weasely.
But given what was at stake with this subject matter and the fact that he gave me the "Bourne Supremacy", I am letting Paul walk free with this one, and join the collective mantra (all together now):"Gosh!What a respectful and touching film!Look, I'm still shaking!"
(Paul, promise me you 'll direct the "Bourne Ultimatum", and I'll even cut the sarcasm)
