Not a disappointment!, 15 June 2006
Author: Mattzees from United States

I disagree with the last user's comment that this film was a disappointment. Given Brian Flemming's recent doc "The God Who Wasn't There", a theme becomes apparent in his work. He is obsessed with "belief". Some people believe in Christ and/or God in spite of the fact that the belief can never be proved, and there is a mountain of evidence that would disprove much of it.

"Nothing So Strange" is less about the assassination of Bill Gates than it is about the people who believe, for no concrete reason, that there MUST be more to the story than what they are being told. They have no proof, but they believe. They are obsessed with what COULD have happened, and they form a group to find the "truth".

The group and their cause take on an almost religious significance with their members. We follow the key members through the rise and fall of the group. We see them attributing favorable events to themselves, and unfavorable events to other outside influences. Sound familiar? In the end, are they any closer to the truth despite all their struggling? This is a film about religion, and the way people behave in large groups. It doesn't matter if that religion is Christianity, or the unshakable belief that there was a conspiracy surrounding the JFK assassination, or that our government is run by space aliens.

This is a well-done indie, with very good acting. It's a little slow at the end of the second act, but it's certainly not a disappointment.
