Loose Change, the Fifth Cut

Good lord, it never ends:

Dramatically narrated by Daniel Sunjata, currently starring on FX’s critically acclaimed “Rescue Me” as Franco Rivera, “Loose Change 9/11: An American Coup” explores historical events that reshaped the world – from the Reichstag Fire in 1933 that catapulted Hitler to dictatorship - to the Gulf of Tonkin Incident in 1964 that led to the Vietnam War. The film leads the audience through a roller-coaster of pivotal history before delving into the largest event of all - 9/11. The film analyzes the steps America took in the aftermath of the disaster, and the suspicious events that followed.

Filmmaker Dylan Avery’s vision and hope is for those affected by 9/11 to receive the answers they seek. He asks for a fundamental call to action, as displayed in the previous “Loose Change” films, and supports the 9/11 truth movement by seeking honesty and clarity from those who have covered up actual events. A topic that inspires passion among many, the producers are actively seeking celebrities to be a voice for those whose questions have remained unanswered to date.

For some unknown reason, they are releasing the film on 9/22/09. At least, that is the current projected release date; we all know that Dylan seldom meets his deadlines. Here's Dylan and Sunjata on the Jack Blood show (MP3 file) to discuss the latest iteration.

Update: Listening to Dylan now. Some things are pretty clear; Dylan's other projects didn't pan out. He hints but does not directly say what's been pretty obvious to me; he made Loose Change not to be a 9-11 conspiracy guy but to be a filmmaker. You can sense this when he talks about how he was done making 9-11 CT films after Final Cut. Also note how he dances around the reason for the lack of success with FC; as we said at the time, it was more of a LIHOP film, but obviously he doesn't want to acknowledge that so Blood helps him out by saying the film was "more accessible".

My advice to Dylan remains the same; if he really wants to be a filmmaker he's probably got enough experience that he could get into a film school, which is what he should be concentrating on.

Update: Unsecured Coins has an announcement as well:

Update II: The news has electrified the Loose Change forums; so far there's one thread on the new movie with one comment:

Sound like a whole new angle on Loose Change.
