The film presumably suggests that September 11 was a horrifying event which opened people's eyes to various harsh realities.

Unified only by its depressing timidity and a surprising lack of relevance, 11'09"01 is a failure.

The most forceful contribution is by Ken Loach.

Seeing September 11 now, five years after its completion, is a reminder not only of the visceral terror from that day, but also of the sense of shared global humanity that flourished briefly in its wake.

Ken Loach's entry aside, this is a self-indulgent bid to wring arthouse kudos from tragedy.

Eminently worth seeing, arguing with, and thinking about.

An uneven but telling document.

The results are not monumental, but they are a variety of sober responses to the tragedy that help place the event in a global context.

The short films range in quality and style from wonderful absurdist metaphor ... to breathtakingly dumb metaphor ... to hilarious satire to theatre of the obscure.

Everyone can find something they like on the buffet.

The best witness of 9/11 is 9/11, and Inarritu, as if honorably terrorized by the facts, turns to an Arabic quotation: 'Does God's light guide us or blind us?'

You have to take the duds with the skyrockets, but overall, this odd compendium is an emotionally moving experience.

It was wise to wait two years to release this collection of 11 shorts, each 11 minutes, nine seconds and one frame in length; even now, it's hard to imagine the viewer whose gut will remain unwrenched.
