    On Aug. 1, 1966, a sniper rode the elevator to the top floor of the University of Texas Tower and opened fire, holding the campus hostage for 96 minutes. The movie shares the untold story of that day, when the worst in one man brought out the best in so many others.

    A gripping examination of human bravery and frailty in the face of barbarity.

    A haunting re-creation of a first-of-its-kind tragedy. Fifty years later, it seems, we're no closer to answers or solutions.

    No matter how many years later, no matter how cool your animation technique might be, "Nobody" somehow feels like the wrong answer to that question.

    "Tower" is, in a sense, about the last day of this country's innocence, or whatever was left of it after Dallas, 1963.

    Despite the grim topic, Tower offers moments of genuine hope in the acts of bravery and kindness that took place during the siege.

    Tower enlists our humanity, and then preaches to us.

    It gains impact when it begins to show many of the eyewitnesses and victims in some case, who in some cases are reuniting 50 years after that hot afternoon to recollect the story.

    The story of the sniper attack, which left 16 dead and three dozen wounded, is told in an extremely compelling style that combines interviews, actual film footage and animated recreations. I highly recommend this one.

    An oral history as a visual poem, director Keith Maitland's Tower attains the woozy, time-standing-still sensation of trauma as it happens.

    Observer (UK)
    February 05, 2017

    Deftly combining archive footage, interviews and handsome rotoscoped animation, Tower is an innovative documentary account of the mass shootings on the University of Texas campus on 1 August 1966.
