A documentary that is actually two (loosely connected) stories. First
it tries to investigate the many consistencies surrounding the 9/11
attacks on the World Trade Center, but more specifically the Pentagon.
it comes to the Pentagon, the film asks if an airplane crashed into the
place, why didn't it cause the same kind of destruction as in the Twin
Towers, and where did the plane's wreckage end up. Which are two very good
questions indeed, and yet, the movie is much better in asking the
questions than really trying to find answers.
In regards to the World
Trade Center: How did the two airplanes manage to create that much damage?
(Now doesn't this question cancel out the similar one above?) And did one
of the airplanes carry something on its bottom? Again, here are questions
and no answers. Sure there are inconsistencies in the stories about the
attacks, but maybe that comes with the nature of the attacks as such that
came completely out of the blue. And asking questions based on some
evidence, however feeble, is most certainly a good starting point, but not
going through with research and such and trying to find plausible answers,
that doesn't really help anyone.
Anyways, what it amounts to is a
conspiracy, not by some Islamists though but forces from the inside ...
maybe an organisation called the Common Purpose, which neatly
segues into the second part of this documentary that talks about a (not
even all that) secret society called Common Purpose that seems to
be indoctrinating authority figures from the UK and US alike under the
guise of a beneficial operation, an organisation that apparently wants to
prepare the Western world for a post-democratic society - but once again,
this line of evidence is full of questions and assumptions, and low on
In all, this is a fascinating documentary
inasmuch as it's full of questions designed to fuel the mind of every
conspiracy theorist worldwide. And while it's short on answers, it's at
least rich on evidence, however feeble some of it may be and however
ambiguous some of it is.
Interestingly (and rather ironically),
the film's distributor Eyes Wide Open saw it fit to couple this
film (that hardly even touches Muslim extremists and puts the blame for
9/11 somewhere completely else) with the old-fashioned and inflammatory
anti-Islam documentary Terror in
America: Preparing for the Next 9/11.
