    Excellent film which really brings the facts and back-story to light for my generation which was not able to experience those difficult days first-hand.

    While some reviewers and voters comment that it would have been nice if they also showed the reason(s) why these tragedies continue, both sides of the history of terrorism have been known and told for years. However, the actual terrorist factions choose to disregard the facts and promote only their own propaganda in order top entice and induce their minions to perform these horrific acts While some reviewers and voters comment that it would have been nice if they also showed the reason(s) why these tragedies continue, both sides of the history of terrorism have been known and told for years.

    Especially timely in light of the current escalation in Palestinian-Israeli aggressions, but this is one sad story that would pack a staggering punch in any political climate.
  2. Impassioned and well-crafted, One Day in September is also grueling.
  3. Scores its ultimate coup de grace though its interviews. Macdonald has lined up an amazing collection of interviewees.
