Despite its frustratingly crude formal construction proves an equally sorrowful and stirring portrait of selflessness in the face of tragedy.
Those with the fortitude to relive the events of the morning of 9/11 should find the documentary "Man in Red Bandana" a powerful and inspiring experience.
The short-subject treatment serves as a challenge that, in eighty minutes, writer-director Matthew Weiss doesn't meet.
Despite some cinematic shortcomings, Man in Red Bandana is a moving and inspiring tribute to an American hero.
Though Matthew J. Weiss' documentary looks and sounds pretty low-budget, is simplistic in structure, and struggles to fill out its 76 minutes, it's blessed with an amazingly powerful, moving story.
An overdue tribute to a selfless hero who put into action his heartfelt belief that we are all here to care for one another. A must see documentary guaranteed to leave you in tears!
Weiss, unfortunately, missed the film-school class where they teach fledgling documentarians not to overuse footage of the events of 9/11.
An emotionally devastating documentary [...] falls apart toward the end when it loses all objectivity and descends into hagiography.
