“Humans are drawn to looking at the unwatchable as a way of cheating death. We willingly look at terrible things, often over and over — real footage of war and dramatizations, actual catastrophes and historical re-creations, the tragic outcomes of which are never in doubt — for the thrill of being alive . Perhaps we’re as astonished by our own good fortune as we are horrified by the worse fates of others who could just as well have been us. We grieve, we resolve, we call loved ones, we replay the images, humbled by our own relief.” — from Lisa Schwarzbaum‘s positive review of United 93 in Entertaiment Weekly.
