It's an interesting story, but having seen Man on Wire, I'm not sure if my enjoyment of the film would be tarnished by my feeling that Petit is/was kind of an asshole. It's hard not to feel he betrayed the friends who helped make his walk possible, not least the girlfriend he cheated on once the act made him famous.
