CATEGORIES OF THIS FILM
The Elephant in the Room is a documentary following British filmmaker Dean Puckett through his journey into the 9/11 Truth Movement: a global movement of ‘conspiracy theorists’ who believe that the official explanation about what happened on 9/11 is totally or partially inaccurate. The filmmakers travel from middle England, across Europe and to New York for the six year anniversary of the attacks, where the film takes one final twist as we are introduced to the 9/11 first responders who are suffering from various grave health difficulties due to the toxic dust that they breathed in trying to help their country during the weeks after this tragic event. Told with a personal hands on approach that avoids advancing any one position, the film asks the question: are these crazy conspiracy theorists? Or is 9/11 Truth a credible political movement?
I wasn't impressed with this film at first because it has a lot of interviews with people that don't have the most credibility. But then they interviewed some credible sources such as Cynthia McKinney and William Rodriguez. The film is rather different than many on the site as it chronicles the clashes that the film makers have with people that disagree with them. This film will not prove that 9-11 was an inside job or a conspiracy. What it will do is put some faces behind the 9-11 Truth movement and show people that are passionately for and against the theories. If you want to investigate the theories you might want to start with learning about the theories before you watch this film.
