  1. msmichel's rating of the film Men at Lunch

    The starting point for this documentary is the iconic photograph 'Lunch atop a Skyscraper' shot in 1932 by an anonymous photographer. What could have been a fascinating doc about the power of the imagination and the hopes and inspirations given from it instead gets bogged down in trying to authenticate photo, photographer and participants but does not have the power to prove. Interesting but of a television depth.

  2. Michael Harbour's rating of the film Men at Lunch

    By indulging (at length) the fantasies of participants who claim connections to the iconic photograph; whether by descent, or heritage, or - most tenuously - by being photographer for a current skyscraper project, the movie undermines the value it could have found by taking a different and deeper approach. Cut to half an hour this might be good filler for The History Channel.
