Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
9/11: Inside the President’s War Room takes you deep “inside the room” as the 9/11 terror attacks happened, with detailed access to the key players, the decisions that were made and the impact they have had, a lot of which is still being felt to this day. A mix of archive footage and photographs (which give an intimate feel to the events as the key moments tick past ) and up to date interviews with former president George Bush and his cabinet, this gives you a view of events that are usually impossible to get unless you were there. Bush comes across much better than expected as the documentary gives you insight into the mind of the man at the centre of events that day and his increasing anger as the day went on. Powerful, unsettling and a bit scary. 9/11: Inside the President’s War Room is a must watch.
Best Bit: The inside detail is phenomenal
