I thought Man On Wire was brilliant. I hadn't even heard of this stunt, or the preceding ones, before this documentary came out.

The only drawback was that we didn't get to see any video footage of the actual stunt.


Yes, they say in the DVD extras that no film/video exists from the rooftop. What a shame. The re-enactments on this docu are really exceptional, though, including that sequence. It points out just how bad most documentary re-enactments are.

Thanks for the comment James, look forward to your next one.
