Let me first start off by saying, I'm a fan of yours. Not a huge fan, but a good fan. You've made some really great films, but also some bad ones. But I always anticipate your films because you tend to pack a lot of hidden things into them, so that multiple viewings always expose more of the movie's intent to me.
When I heard you were making a 9/11 WTC movie, I was cautious. That's some very delicate subject matter, and it's only 5 years ago, so it's all still fresh in our minds. But, I figured, even though all conservative pundits will be freaking out about it, if anyone could do a really good job, you would be high on that list.
But, I fear you've made a terrible mistake. I saw the trailer for this film the other day, and I started laughing. I guess that's entirely the wrong response you intended to get, but I started laughing and I could not stop!
Why was I laughing? Well, the answer is very simple: Nicholas Cage was wearing one of the most ridiculous-looking moustaches I've ever seen. One look at that silly thing, and I couldn't take him seriously. *sigh*
On a side note, wouldn't it be funny if David Lynch or David Cronenberg made a WTC movie?
I can just imagine the Lynchian version; dancing midgets everywhere, hallucinations and flashbacks for the first 95% of the movie, with a plane crash at the end and the terrorists are suddenly transmogrified into the bodies of hot lesbian women starring in a porno flick.
Cronenberg would create some kind of massive dead-body monster who eats all the firefighters.
