Path to 9/11
I watched most of the controversial Path to 9/11. True or not, I thought it was pretty good but for this, as noticed by Tim Cavanaugh:
However, having checked out a few minutes of last night's episode, I do have one plangent cry from the mouth of madness: Please, God, please, let the era of the shakycam come to an end! What sinister plot, what hatred of the west, what terrorist conspiracy is it that subjects the world's greatest democracy to the stomach-churning effects of artsyfartsy handheld camerawork day after day, movie after movie?

It is a nice effect, but really not for every scene. The only still shots were where the subjects were so far away that the jiggle effect would make them unrecognizable.
