First off, I like this film very much and I think it is crucial to the 9/11 'truth movement'. The documented info is excellent and this movie may
well be the 'holy grail' of the bunch so far. I'm passing around copies of this and if I only had 90 minutes to state my case, LC would probably be
However, with a subject as important as this I could understand why the movie may be somewhat ignored or brushed off by those in 'higher positions'
and who would otherwise have an open mind.
What is most distracting is the production, which IMO lacks professionalism and a serious tone in many areas:
1. The Music.
How does an overpowering hip-hop style pounding beat help this message? I can understand a bunch of 21 yr old kids from NYC wanting to get their
buddies' bands in a movie, but for this? I have watched this DVD on 6 different home systems so far, and there are scenes where the music is just too
loud. In one scene the narration is VERY difficult to hear over the beat. I know it's the norm to embellish your emotional message with a soundtrack,
but do our emotions NEED an extra push regarding this subject?
2. The Narrator/Script
Although a good effort and much better than 'Painful Deceptions' narrator Eric Hufschmid's voice, there is no mistaking the young teenage sounding-
often rushed voice of inexperience. There were spots I had to replay several times because of poor diction and hurried sentences. And what's with the
SARCASM? The place for ridicule and sarcasm is on the street or in the bar with your friends. For this story to be taken seriously by the masses it
must be presented in a mature, non-judgmental way. The evidence that LC presents is certainly strong enough to stand on it's own without
3. The Speculations
As we have seen on this forum with comments like: "You don't have evidence, 95% of what is being said in documentaries is simply not true", there
are many skeptics who are chomping at the bit to debunk this effort whether they have seen the films or not. Loose Change's assertion that "The cell
phone calls were faked", for example, is just the kind of thing that will steer people away and sour them on the subject. Plus, it gives the
detractors plenty of well-founded ammo.
The point of my criticism is to help us become more aware of just how huge an obstacle we face. We will never convincingly identify, let alone defeat
those who did this by fighting them on our home court. We must beat them using THEIR rules. Plenty of great and powerful minds are out there to help
us .. we only need to reach them.
