May 8, 2003
[Reno] delivers a monologue that manages to incorporate both the horror and the absurdity of the situation in a well-balanced fashion.

Even though the film runs a brief 71 minutes -- finishing off with footage of Reno talking with New Yorkers on the street in the aftermath of 9/11 -- Reno shows enough gusto to make you a fan.
