Review: The Flag

CNN Looks for Answers in Stirring 9/11 Documentary
Washington Post

In Michael Tucker and Petra Epperlein’s stirring and even baffling CNN documentary The Flag (9pm), we are taken along on a hunt to solve a mystery (What happened to that flag? Who has it?) but also to look within ourselves at the mysterious processes of catharsis and symbolism. (In other words, why did we need that flag to do what it did to us emotionally?)

The Flag is precisely the sort of film we should be making and watching at this particular distance from the attacks.
