In March 2002 for the premiere on
CBS, they had people worried that the movie would be gruesome, nauseating, maybe fallen jumpers on the sidewalk, body parts, blood, guts, etc.

And for what it's worth CBS did make network history by airing
the F word.

But then the Naudets POINTEDLY UNDERPLAYED the gruesomeness expectation, by having Jules testify how he consciously decided AGAINST filming the "burning" person(s?).

Jules says with tears in his eyes: "I just didn't want to film that. It was like, no one, no one should have to see this." MEANING, I think, 'No one BUT US [the filmmakers] should GET to see it!'

This moment garnered them praise, in reviews, because of their commendable non-sensationalist "self-restraint," their "auto-censorship."

BUT THE SICK INSIDE JOKE IS ON US: THE MOVIE WE ARE WATCHING IS A *SNUFF FILM*, MADE BY *EVIL MEN*, *KILLERS* WHO *MOCK* US BY *BASKING* IN THE *PRAISES* WHICH THEY *CON* OUT OF US!

It smells like they murdered the Staten Island FDNY Probie (Michael Gorumba) on 8/28.
It smells like they murdered the FDNY Chaplain (Mychal Judge) and the brother of Battalion Chief Joseph Pfeifer (Lt. Kevin Pfeifer) on 9/11.

It smells like they murdered all those office workers, in the Towers.

It JUST PLAIN SMELLS.
