Audience Reviews for 102 Minutes That Changed America
Without a doubt the hardest documentary that I have ever watched, 102 Minutes That Changed America is a point of view real time film on the events that occurred on September 11th 2001. The documentary uses no narration whatsoever instead it relies on amateur footage from that day to recount the events. The way that the documentary is done is remarkable and it's a film that chronicles an important part in history. I remember vividly when it happened, I was sixteen years old at the time, and I saw this live, and it's something that you cannot forget, it stayed sheered into my memory like so many others. This documentary shows us the perspective from various sources and what is presented here is a raw attempt at capturing the events, and what is here is something quite surreal. This is a very hard documentary to review because I really don't know how to phrase what I see here. Revisiting the events of that day is always hard, and with 102 Minutes That Changed America we have a document that tells this important event. As a documentary, this is one of the finest genre films that I have seen, and being comprised of rare, never seen footage, it's an unforgettable film that shows the attacks, the horror, panic, anger and shock of the New Yorkers. I watched it all on TV live, and to this day, it still feels fresh in my mind. The only word that can come to mind in describing the film is chaos. What is filmed here is terrifying, and with the fact that it only relies on footage from people who happened to be there and with no narration, the film is engaging, captivating and you simply cannot tear yourself away from what you're watching because what you are seeing here is something that shaped what was to follow in the years to come. After the events of this day, the world would never be the same, and the film is superbly made, and is a flawless documentary that is terrifying, poignant and unforgettable.More
