9/11: Press for Truth

This mostly sober examination of the fateful events of September 2001 crams two documentaries in one. The first examines the "Jersey Girls," grieving wives and mothers whose families were lost in the World Trade Center attack. Their attempts to talk the government into an independent investigation of the events are met with an often baffling official stonewall. The second half segues into the story of Paul Thompson, who constructed an infamous online "timeline" of 9/11 events. His chronology, of course, questions a great many of our government's assertions. There is a touch of conspiracy theory in this film, but most of the conclusions seem both rational and troubling. 84 minutes
