The BBC sent a reviewer to the Tribeca film festival yesterday at which “United 93” debuted in the U.S. The reviewer, to the seeming surprise of the two radio anchors who set up his story, pronounced the film one of the best he had ever seen. For a habitual (if cynical) BBC listener, this was the purest sort of turnaround. From the Beeb, one expects at least a little supercilious irony, a little arch superiority. Not a speck of that in the reviewer’s comments on “United 93.”
