Living Vicariously Through The Walk
By LEV AKABAS
I really don’t like watching movies in 3-D. Bulky glasses that give me a headache and make everything in the background look blurry don’t enhance my moviegoing experience. Furthermore, I’ve found that, in general, 3-D makes the action on the screen look less real and is a constant reminder that I’m in a movie theater watching actors. The Walk is a rare case of 3-D used for a purpose other than stealing the audience’s money. The film tells the amazing true story of Philippe Petit, who walked on a tightrope between the two World Trade Center towers in 1974.
