It's deep, it's sexy, it's prophetic, it's great!
22 August 2004 | by (Hollywood, California) – See all my reviews

Art Deco Detective came out before its time. Now 10 years later, it was prophetic. It reveals the plot and theory of 9/11/2001 Terrorist Attacks on NY and the Pentagon. The movie was made in 1994 and includes archive footage of President Lyndon B. Johnson preparing his speech with his writer.

Director and writer Philippe Mora is a historian. This movie leads to the conclusion that the US government blamed the terrorist acts on the Muslims to start another war, because war is good for the economy. In Art Deco Detective, the Muslim terrorist leader (which is described the same way Usama bin Laden is described) sets off a nuclear bomb in Los Angeles while the heads of the US government leave the day before to an island vacation. I don't know if Philippe is psychic or researched inside information, but this seems as his way of warning the world. This movie is deep and entertaining and not meant for people with A.D.D., you must think and focus while watching. There is plenty of skin and sexy Bettie Page inspired bondage and S & M with a tongue in cheek sense of humor. It is a dark comedy and you can learn something about history and the government at the same time.
