"The Bridge" falls flat as a seriously repetative and strangly unpowerful mess. It follows the intresting stories of 24 people and focuses on a specific 5 or 6 but never really jolts a tear from your eyes despite its constant attempts showing actual suicide footage and supurb shots of the Golden Gate bridge. But beautiful imagery and disturbing content involving suicide are not enough for the film to really take off. It seems to try so hard but not have enough plot to work with. Director Eric Steel seems to do the best job you can with a movie like this, but at the end, the truth is, this movie should never really have been made. It shows amazing lives and the choices leading up to ending them, yes, but is that something we wan't to see on such big screens this box office season? I don't think so. It is clear that Deliver Us From Evil is the only personal-based documentary that really proves to be stunning this year. Expand
