Salon – The 9/11 movie Hollywood won’t let you see
Two months after it was ready for release, and after it screened at high-profile international film festivals in Venice and Toronto, “11’09″01,” the French-produced movie about the international repercussions of Sept. 11, can’t get no respect in the U.S. Dubbed “stridently anti-American” by Variety, the movie is in distribution limbo despite the participation of hot international directors such as Mira Nair (“Monsoon Wedding”), Alejandro Gonz∑lez I“∑rritu (“Amores Perros”) and Danis Tanovic (“No Man’s Land”).
Yet another reason to despise the Bush government. If we Americans cannot understand how we are perceived outside of America, we cannot be a good global citizen.
