Oscar Movie Preview: Man on Wire For Best Documentary

Since it can often be hard to see some of the Oscar-nominated documentaries in theaters, it's nice to get a taste of them before Oscar night — not to mention that it might help you when you fill out your Oscar ballot. So this week I'll feature as many of the Best Documentary previews as I can.

The documentary Man on Wire already holds the title of best reviewed movie ever and could soon add Oscar winner to its credits. The movie follows young Frenchman Philippe Petit who illegally rigged wires between New York's Twin Towers in 1974 and embarked on a tight-rope act 1,350 feet above the ground. The documentary tells the the story of the six-and-a-half years during which Petit planned for what he would describe as a "coup."

Critics across the board have nothing but praise for director James Marsh's creation with one rave review calling it a "thorough, understated and altogether enthralling documentary."
