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.
