“Charlie Victor Romeo” Now Streaming Online


The independent film “Charlie Victor Romeo,” with all of its dialog taken from the CVR transcripts of real aviation accidents, now is available for viewing via iTunes. “Charlie Victor Romeo delivers the intensity and gut-wrenching emotion of these emergencies via the unique approach of live performance,” says the iTunes site. A.O. Scott, film critic for the New York Times, called it “one of the most terrifying movies I have ever seen.” If you missed it in New York, or at one of the film festivals or independent theaters where it played, now you can see it from any computer or wifi-enabled TV.

AVweb spoke with the film’s director, Bob Berger, last year, when the film was in theaters. Berger recalled the 1999 AVweb review of the play, which was seen by reporter Peter Yost in New York. The review was the play’s first introduction to the aviation community. “I was incredibly thrilled AVweb discovered the play and sent someone to review it,” Berger said. The film is available for rental or for sale at iTunes, at prices from $3.99 to $9.99. Other digital release announcements are expected soon; details will be posted on the film’s website.
