Why Not to see "United 93"

From a New University editorial:
The effect the film could have on Arab-Americans, though positive because it is explicative of a problem the United States, is still a very real possibility. If this film reminds just one person that they should be afraid of the fellow flight passenger with a turban, then the “real” negative effects of the film have outweighed any positive theoretical ones.

The kind of good that this movie will inevitably bring is not the kind the United States needs right now. These men and women on those planes were indeed heroes, with an unfathomable sense of courage and responsibility.

But a movie like this will more likely incite the “let’s roll” attitude seen at the beginning of the Afghanistan war, rather than a consideration as to why these people were put in a position to act so courageously. [Link]

Having seen this very important and very good film, I still must say there are probably as many good reasons not see it as there are to see it ... Whether or not you are ready to see the events of this most horrid day very meticuously and very well reconstructed is a decision every person must make for themselves
