United 93: My review

I went to see "United 93" over the weekend. This is an intense, powerful film.

All of us have our memories of 9/11. "United 93" is a telescope into what happened that day.

To those who would say, "It's too soon for this movie", I say this movie needed to be made, and it needs to be watched. At what point does it become ok? 10 years from now? 20 years from now? If not now, when?

I cannot tell you why "United 93" needs to be watched, except to say that my 9/11 demons have been eased somewhat. I can look into the Devil's eyes, knowing he can be beaten. At the very least, I know I can keep him from getting what he wants.
