Few New York City photos are as familiar or evocative as the one that inspired the documentary "Men At Lunch."

Shots of modern men rebuilding One World Trade Center stirringly evokes the majestic photo's continuing connection to the present.

The core image is striking, but it's not quite as "iconic" as claimed. The allusions to 9/11 are unnecessary. But Men at Lunch remains an honourable, worthwhile effort.

The gritty beauty of the time of the original melting pot and the mysterious origins of the most famous photo in the world.

Men at Lunch loses sight of its lede and fumbles away viewer interest. The photo itself says more than this muddled documentary.

Regrettably, "Men at Lunch" obsesses over disappearing ghosts instead of the records we already have and the history we should know.

The film feels meandering. Not only does it offer a jumble of ideas that aren't followed through, but it's also structured oddly.

But just as the documentary doesn't really have the goods when it comes to solving the photograph's mysteries, it only skims across the surface of what the picture represents.

Whether it merits a feature-length documentary or a slot on PBS, I'm not sure.

While some interviewees proffer genuine insights worth pondering, these can't balance the film's wayward focus and runaway aggrandisement.

By the time an extremely misjudged 9/11 montage swings into view, you'll be wishing they'd just let the photograph speak for itself.
