Though none of these 13 videos culled from the project is superb on its own, the mix of perspectives encourages us to think analytically about our own responses and the sources of the terrorists' hatred.

If you're like a lot of people, you're probably sick of hearing about 9/11. Yet the pervasive sense of dread, and wonder, refuses to go away.

The results vary wildly, from long and rambling to minor masterworks.
