Tom Flynn, the idealist owner of a left-leaning radical café/bookstore and the quixotic publisher of a hard hitting 911 conspiracy expose, finds himself entangled with a mysterious Eastern European beauty, Kasia, who is on the run from strong hand of a global 911 cover up. In this contemporary take on film noir. When Tom is implicated in the murder of his friend and employee, he is forced to unravel Kasia's complex web of lies. As it turns out, Kasia possesses the smoking gun that proves the identities and methods of the real architects of 911, and Tom Flynn is willing to die to expose the truth. Written by Dave Herman

Maltese Falcon by way of 9/11's ABLE DANGER.
30 January 2008 | by (Rotterdam, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I liked this film. It was sharp. Not everyone will get it. But those who do will love it. Elina Löwensohn is a gem, a real star and the supporting cast is overall very good. Michael J. Burg doing his best Udo Keir/Peter Lorre is sinister, yet tongue in cheek fun. I thought the film noir style was well done. I mean Bogart would have been better than Adam Nee, but so what. Mr. Nee is a star of tomorrow and he was awesome. Not sure everyone in the audience got the MALTESE FALCON homage - but I did. Loved it. Too bad more indie directors don't get the money to create, thats what I really liked about this movie - it clearly was a new director's vision brought to life without studio crap bogging it down. I hope the internet conspiracy guys find this movie - they will love it's humor. Project Monarch? Awesome.
