      Audience Member Very moving and well-done. Some segments are in foreign languages but one does not need to understand language to feel sympathy for the characters. I kind of think that's the point of the film. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review s r Different unique perspectives on 9/11 that are informative and moving. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review luis g It doesn't feel like a 2-hour plus movie since each contribution is only around 11 minutes long. This works well to keep it moving at a nice pace. Each entry is fairly unique with an interesting take on the events that happened. September 11th is always an emotional topic, and the stories told here are treated with respect. A fine collection, but Iñárritu's abstract contribution was quite disappointing. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member O curta de Sean Penn: A escolha do ator foi inusitada: Ernest Borgnine foi vilão em muitos filmes entre os anos 1950 e 1960, teve papà (C)is de cowboys e militares (ele mesmo foi da Marinha norte-americana por dez anos e participou da Segunda Guerra Mundial) carrancudos. Neste curta, entretanto, ele representou um velhinho carismático. A fotografia do filme mostra em close todos os objetos velhos e ultrapassados na casa do personagem: relógio, gilete (e uma caixa com giletes usadas), óculos (que o personagem não usa, apesar de precisar)⦠Em alguns momentos, a câmera perde o foco. O alarme toca para avisar o que está por vir, mas o velhinho não presta atenção. A personagem não quer enxergar, não quer ouvir. Não à (C) só ele, no entanto, que não está prestando atenção ao que está acontecendo: na TV à (C) transmitido um programa que tenta descobrir se alguà (C)m à (C) gay ou não â" do ponto de vista do interesse público, irrelevante. Com a queda das Torres, o apartamento, enfim, se ilumina, e as flores mortas pela falta de luz renascem. Sean Penn, apesar de construir seu país de uma forma dura, deixa uma esperança, sugere uma possibilidade de fazer diferente. O curta deixa no ar a moral de que sempre dá mudar. A Amà (C)rica morta não existe mais, mas dá para fazer diferente, ela renasce â" como as flores do vaso. Review completa em: http://cibridismo.wordpress.com/2010/09/11/o-curta-de-sean-penn-em-11901-september-11-2002/ Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member This provocative international co-production brought together eleven acclaimed directors and asked them to make an 11 minute short in response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The result is a daring and moving global cinematic reply to the earth shaking events that continue to haunt our nightmares and shape world events. stars Sean Penn, Dzana PinjoD, Emmanuelle Laborit, Keren Mor, Lionel Zizreel Guire, Maryam Karimi and Nour El-Sherif. directed by Amos Gitai, Claude Lelouch, Danis Tanovic, Idrissa Ouedraogo, Ken Loach, Mira Nair, Samira Makhmalbaf, Sean Penn, Shohei Imamura, Youssef Chahine Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member 11 film makers from around the world each make a short film about 9/11. This stands as the strongest piece of 9/11 cinema that I've seen and it far more evocative than United 93 or World Trade Centre.

      Joshua Rothkopf In These Times Unified only by its depressing timidity and a surprising lack of relevance, 11'09"01 is a failure. Mar 16, 2020 Full Review Empire Magazine Ken Loach's entry aside, this is a self-indulgent bid to wring arthouse kudos from tragedy. Rated: 2/5 Dec 30, 2006 Full Review Peter Rainer New York Magazine/Vulture An ungainly, intermittently harrowing omnibus filled with moments of piercing sorrow and rage. Aug 7, 2004 Full Review David Walsh World Socialist Web Site The film presumably suggests that September 11 was a horrifying event which opened people's eyes to various harsh realities. Feb 16, 2021 Full Review Philip French Observer (UK) The most forceful contribution is by Ken Loach. Jan 15, 2008 Full Review Marc Mohan Oregonian Seeing September 11 now, five years after its completion, is a reminder not only of the visceral terror from that day, but also of the sense of shared global humanity that flourished briefly in its wake.
