I'm over half way thru it and it might be the best I've seen. Everything before the explosions, plus some other concrete tidbits, are the sorts of
things that would move people... but they are always lost with all of the fringe stuff.
Its amazing that the thread for this film only had 10 responses in 6 months. Or is it? I learned the hard way that when you make a film so dead on
that there is nothing to actually debate afterwards very little discussion occurs and its in effect silenced. Take Loose Change 2nd edition for
example. It had some major flaws, I mean major. And perhaps more importantly they used absolutist referencing to numerous highly debatable things.
The strange Randi'esque "Skeptics" subculture love this sort of thing. They dont even want to discuss geopolitcal matters or the like. Instead all
they want to talk about is 'physics' and visual things. So the more things of this nature you give them the more items they'll have to divert
discussion away from concrete issues. In the 'logical' they call it mind of the pseudoskeptic, 'debunk' all this visual sort of stuff and that
proves theres no conspiracy. It's like an Athiest who debunks some stuff from the Bible, and then determines that there absolutely isnt a 'god' or
anythign like it.
Even Fox News promoted Loose Change 2nd edition. So later they make a "Final Cut". I dig it. They spend more time on the concrete issues, and use
rationalist terminolgy when handling the debatable stuff, overall. I recall the Final Cut thread being about as empty as this.
I've been observing this for years now. It's a shame because I have several videos to make on several subjects, yet I refuse to make them very much
debatable, yet why devote excruciating time if noone notices it because there's nothing to debate. Sorry to whine, but its really directed towards
this sad state in human affairs where people only seem to wnat to put energy into something that will end up having to either take the fringe or take
the 'skeptic' route of normalcy, in knee-jerk absolutist form.
To put it a better way, I'm lamenting this reality where people seem to only want to get passionate about something that is itself irrational. It mus
tnot be as fun to actually pick a side in something unless there exists room for both sides to make the other look like fools.
