Film about conspiracy theorists, not by conspiracy theorists
I've been reading the board for this documentary, and I really think a lot of people have it wrong.
To me, this is a great documentary. People who are trying to argue one side or the other of the conspiracy theory, using this film as justification, are just plain looking at it the wrong way. This is about people. It's not meant to enlighten the viewer on the details of any of these theories. In fact, one thing I noticed quite a bit was how details of the actual beliefs of these people are mostly left out. Of course we hear them yell at protests, and talk about their beliefs, but this is more about understanding the person.
We get the stories of several different people: how they started with their current beliefs, how it's changed their lives, how their daily lives are occupied with this stuff. In the end, it all ties together.
At the end of it all, I personally see this as a film showing us how these are all real people who, while possibly misguided, are not genuinely crazy (the exception possibly being Jones, even though you end up feeling bad for him in a way). These are just people who ended up on the path they're on for one reason or another, like we all do.
I think that anyone who can watch this objectively will enjoy it. Don't let yourself get caught up in whether or not 9/11 was a conspiracy or how evil the Bildergerg Group is. This is a study of people... of a very particular culture of people, but people nonetheless.
