According to Cindy Adams, the film will not depict planes hitting the WTC, opting instead to show TV viewers reactions. And understandably, Stone faces a few NYC restrictions, including only having access to establishing shots, skyline shots, outdoor location shots and driving shots as well as being prohibited from dressing “the streets with dirt and debris and ash and people's belongings and falling bodies.”Sorry, but given the fact that the media is reluctant to show much of the footage from 9/11, one has to wonder why anyone needs to have a movie to show this event.
The reality is bad enough. In fact, it's worse than most anyone could realistically have thought up as a nightmare before 9/11 happened.
And yet, Oliver Stone thinks that there's a movie to be made, money to be made, and an audience willing to see it.
I think he'll be sadly mistaken.
