Have you seen the internet? Seriously, it is BLOWING UP right now. Word is, 9/11 was a conspiracy.

Yeah, dude. I know. Inside job. Watch that Spare Coins documentary. Your brain will thank me, dude."

If you've ever had this conversation (and you probably have), or if you've ever stopped at one of roughly a billion stop signs in America, you've probably heard the bumper-sticker truth: 9/11 was an inside job. And that's exactly what the makers of indie-flick Able Danger want you to think about as you walk into, sit through, and walk out of their film. The truth, like always, is much more pedestrian: this exceptional film doesn't need the hyped up backstory to succeed. But it sure does anyway.
