I reluctantly went to see this movie because of my uncomfortableness seeing people in precarious positions, near ledges, etc. I figured maybe the last ten minutes when he actually walks the wire I could bear it. Wrong, the son of a gun turns around and walks it again. And again. It drove me out of theatre three times. I do not know how Phillippe did this. I use to watch him on his unicycle in Wash Sq Park where he practiced and juggled. Talked with him a few times. But this movie is over the top..literally.. For me it was the scariest thing I ever witnessed. If you like this kind of tension , well this is your movie. Will probably torment my dream world for days. ps as a film, its very good, just not for me.
