TOWER (2016)

TOWER is a 2016 documentary about the Texas Tower sniper attack that took place in Austin, Texas on Aug 1, 1966.

The choice to animate the re-enactments and get young actors to portray the now much older victims and witnesses, using their interviews word for word, if handled poorly, could have been distracting. Fortunately, it isn't. 

This is a great achievement in documentary film-making, and a profoundly moving meditation on the complicated nature of true courage. Highly recommended.
