There is much reported concern that the rescue-of-the-Port- Authority-guys-under-the-9/11-rubble movie that Oliver Stone is directing will be insensitive and/or exploitative, and so Stone and the untitled flm’s co-producer Michael Shamberg are promising everyone the film will be respectful to 9/11 victims and their families, blah, blah. And I’m starting to get the idea that these guys are going to be so scared about being insensitive that it’s going to be tough for them to make a movie. I don’t care what the subject is, but one of the general rules of filmmaking is that the more a director feels he/she has to tiptoe around the material in a film, or the more he’s being pressured by nervous nellies, the more likely it is that the film will have a cottonball kid-gloves quality. Shamberg has apparently said, “We’re not doing the ‘Towering Inferno-Titanic’ version of [9/11]. We’re not doing everyone’s story that day. We’re trusted with the accuracy of the particular story that we’re telling.”
