Bozell: 'World Trade Center' a Masterpiece?

This is unexpected. This is a press release from Brent Bozell of the Media Research Center about Oliver Stone's upcoming "World Trade Center":

World Trade Center is a masterpiece and must be seen by as many people as possible. Oliver Stone has created something spectacular and it deserves our nation’s gratitude. Conservatives and liberals will praise this movie.”

“For just a few hours following the attacks of September 11th, political ideologies fell by the wayside,” Bozell continued.  “Americans came together for a rare moment to recognize the significance and fragility of life and liberty.  This film captures that moment in time and honors the true essence of selfless love witnessed on that fateful day.  It’s more than a movie – it’s a vivid reminder of the love, heroism, faith and patriotism that comprise the fabric of our country.” 

World Trade Center tells the true story of two Port Authority police officers (portrayed by Nicholas Cage and Michael Pena) who volunteered to assist with the rescue of people trapped in the World Trade Center on 9/11 – only to become buried alive in the rubble themselves.  The story chronicles their heroic actions and how their faith, families, and new friendship kept them alive.
"World Trade Center" hasn't gotten the buzz that "Flight 93" got with all the "it's too soon! We can't take it!" articles. I figured it was because Stone's piece (which would befit Stone) was reflexively lefty or anti-Bush-administration in some way.

You see, because society is always ready to talk about 9/11 as long as it reflects badly on Bush, according to the press. It's only when you want to examine the day in a non-political or patriotic light that people's sensitivities need to be respected.

So, count me pleasantly surprised. I was invited to a screening of "World Trade Center" Thursday night, which I'm sad to say I can't attend. But we'll be sending another Townhall person so we can get a write-up on it as soon as possible. I'm intrigued.
