Flight of the Phoenix 

Robert Aldrich

Published December 08, 2005.Flight of the PhoenixDirected by: Robert Aldrich(Fox)Figuring this remake of 1965's Flight of the Phoenix would be disposable, I never caught it in time for a review last Christmas. On a recommendation, I saw the film on its last night of release, entranced by its adventure tropes and surprised by its social politics. DVD doesn't match the experience of seeing John Moore's sand-and-sky vistas on a screen bigger than you are. But it does include a making-of documentary where the director goes crazy and throws a chair.Mark PalermoCategories: Best of the year (2005)
