man on wire (2008) - james marsh

A superb documentary about a 1974 tightrope walk between the Twin Towers, and the build up to it, 'Man on Wire' manages to keep the suspense and interest alive,  even though you already know the outcome (as he (Philippe Petite)  is talking on the film in later life, you can assume he didn't die).  There are also some emotional bits, but it is mainly about one man and his obsession and drive. Marvellous stuff.
