Re: “The 9/11 porn of Cloverfield

I would venture that those of you who claim that Cloverfield has nothing to do with 9/11 were not in New York City at the time of the attacks. While I agree that there are many movies that take place in NYC and involve its destruction, they do not pull material directly from both the physical and emotional aftermath of the terrorist attacks. Yes, the movie had its monster-movie parts, such as the scene in the subway tunnel, exploding people, etc, but the overall feeling of terror and entrapment, the confusion, the dust, and even the way that the movie was filmed closely parallels the experiences of those who lived through 9/11. A final point: whether or not you personally were affected by the movie, the fact that Cloverfield did have a 9/11-related impact on many people suggests that it does, in some way, harken back memory of the event.
