Tower (2016)


Who would have thought that a movie about a massacre would be the film to leave you with a renewed faith in humanity? I certainly didn't. While most films would focus on the shooter and his motives, this film hardly makes mention of him. This isn't a case of plastering one of the Boston Bombers on the cover of Rolling Stone like he's some sort of rock star. I'm not totally certain, but I feel like they don't even say the Austin Shooter's name out loud, and the only photo of him is as a baby. This is a film about the victims, about their lives and their experiences. It is also a film about compassion, sacrifice and even forgiveness. Oh and it's a cartoon too. Man I love cinema!
