United 93

Last week, I was watching a 2006 episode of Inside the Actors Studio featuring Tom Hanks. I heard him praise the film United 93. I have not been able to watch the movie so far, but after hearing his praise for it, I had Tivo hunt it down and record it. It was there today when I was flipping through the Now Playing list.

And yet I still cannot bring myself to watch it yet. Somehow, it’s still too soon, and I’m not ready for it. Intellectually, I know this is silly, it’s just a movie. Emotionally, though, it seems as though it’s something completely different.

Maybe someday. I’ll keep it around for a while and see.
