How "effective" it is? This is not a term you used in your original post -- and that was a wise choice, because the word is pretty meaningless when used carelessly like this. "Effective" in what sense? Say what? I thought you lived in Nyack, not under a rock. Not only do I myself think "United 93" is a fine film, but it earned two Oscar nominations (directing and editing), and was near-universally hailed by critics, earning a very impressive 91% rating on the rottentomatoes.com website and appearing on numerous "top 10 films of the year" lists. But maybe it wasn't "effective" enough for you?... What would be their motivation to sound upbeat and give recovery rates of 60% or higher? Seems like you'd sell more papers if you find an expert who says "movie star at death's door!"
