Like For Like – 5 documentaries like The Anthrax Attacks: In the Shadow of 9/11

United 93 (2006)

In my opinion, this is the most emotional film/documentary that focuses on the 9/11 attacks. Detailing the personal stories of the people onboard, you really root for them as they fight for their lives. And whilst we all know the outcome, you watch United 93 and just wish there was a different outcome.

Worth (2021)

Different from most movies about the 9/11 attacks. Rather than focus on the attacks themselves, this movie focuses on the true story of the Washington D.C. lawyer Kenneth Feinberg and his battle against cynicism, bureaucracy, and politics after he has to put a price on those that lost their lives in the terror attacks on September 11th, 2001.

9/11: Inside the President’s War Room (2021)

As said by the BBC, “this documentary tells the definitive story of the Bush administration through 12 hours of that momentous day, with first-hand testimony from President Bush”. It’s an insightful look at the attacks, with a unique look at how the White House had to react to the attacks with fears that Air Force One could have been next.

Remember Me (2010 film)

This film caused a very divided response when it was released, and it still does to this day. It’s likely that you’ve heard of the film even if you haven’t watched it. But many were dismayed with the ending involving the 9/11 attacks. In fact, some called the film offensive. Watch the film for yourself and see what you think.

Zero Dark Thirty (2012)

This thriller film was better received than Remember Me as it grossed $132 million worldwide and appeared on 95 critics’ top ten lists of 2012. Although the film doesn’t take place in the 2001 timeline, it details the manhunt for Bin Laden.
