The Bridge


Is anyone planning to see this movie? It was discussed on 20/20 this past week. It takes a look @ ppl that have committed suicide by jumping off the GGB . It's a doc. film with clips of friends & family, of the ppl that decided the only way out was to end their lives.

Just saw it last night. The movie is, as it should be expected, very dark. The subject matter along with the footage of people hurtling themselves from the bridge makes for a very difficult and solemn couple of hours. It does peek into the deeply disturbing world of people who commit suicide and the aftermath for their friends and relatives. And I say "peek." It's very well done and I can't help but have the deepest sympathy for people who have come to a point in their life where they can see no other solutions, even though I have very little understanding of their inner world.

i live close-by to the Golden Gate Bridge & on a couple of occasions while driving accross i've seen police leaning over the side trying to *talk back* potential jumpers.
so strange that it lures so many people who want to end their lives.
i've often thought that many jumpers must think,
"shit ..... this was a little TOO drastic" on the way down.
i kinda wanted to see this film .... but ..... well , there's Golden Gate Bridge *jumper* stories here on the tv news / papers on a regular basis (the average is about 1 suicide a month i think) so maybe the 'mystery' of it all has been dulled by the repititive nature of the act for us locals.
i dunno ..... i'm guessing i WILL eventually watch it ... i've heard it's a pretty intense / sad / moving / thought provoking piece of work.
the Golden Gate Bridge Authority was none-too-pleased with the film maker ..... he requested permits to set up his remote cameras under the ruse of "filming the Bridge in different light / weather conditions"
