Despite not liking a lot of the shaky cam technique employed in today’s cinema, I do think Paul Greengrass uses it quite effectively. I enjoyed both THE BOURNE SUPREMACY and ULTIMATUM, but I think UNITED 93 is something of a modern masterpiece. I didn’t care for his last film, GREEN ZONE, however. But his latest looks really, really good! It’s based on a true story about a freighter ship being ransacked by pirates. It’s got Tom Hanks too! The trailer makes it look like that this could be a very intense experience. This film certainly has my attention now, and it is being added to my ever growing anticipated list of 2013. This arrives at theater on October 11th.
