Ten years later, is it still too soon? A handful of films have addressed the events of September 11, 2001, from various angles, but none have attained true landmark status, culturally or cinematically. There is no work yet that might be called 'The 9/11 Story.' For an industry that didn't even wait until our previous president was out of office before depicting his life on-screen, that seems like an awful long time to wait before taking up the most widely documented incident in history, probably the most important event of the last generation.
