I have never been very interested in documentaries.Quite honestly, they usually bore me..I read about Man on Wire in a "Best of 2008" review on the Temporary Residence Records website.Some guy from one of the Temporary Residence bands gave this quite a good rating.I became curious, as I could not quite imagine how interesting a rope walker could be.

This documentary turned out to be pretty amazing.The footage covering the rope walker Philip Petite's training and public performances is beyond being literally breathtaking.Petite walks from twin tower to twin tower.What makes this documentary is the story of how Petite and his gang managed to pull
it off.Please do yourself a favour and check it out!

Here's the site.
