Critic Reviews for 7 Days in September
It recreates what those days felt like with excruciating precision: the wild panic, the moments of funereal calm, the spontaneous blossoming of solidarity and fellow feeling.
If ever there was a prime example of art bringing order out of chaos, it is Steven Rosenbaum's 7 Days in September.
A worthwhile addition to the reams of footage of the day the earth stood still.
Offers a fine counterpoint to the more fatuous and opportunistic takes on shared tragedy and collective grief.
A reminder of the tremendous human spirit and generosity New Yorkers showed after their WTC was destroyed by terrorists.
What distinguishes 'Seven Days in September' are the smaller scale moments that it captures, individual human elements within the broader sweep of events.
another strong argument for the importance and pervasiveness of digital video in a post-information age
The film not only stands as an important street-level document of that time, but makes a valuable contribution to the growing compilation of 9/11 storytelling.
The tragedy and the many responses to it come alive here in a raw, immediate way that suffers no loss of impact for its aversion to melodrama.
