Movies about 9/11 are typically received with mixed feelings from the public, and the latest of these—Jarek Kupsc’s The Reflecting Pool—will no doubt do likewise. Gather ’round, conspiracy theorists: Kupsc’s investigative drama claims that terrorists were only half responsible for the mass killings. The other half? You guessed it: the U.S. government. Claiming to be based on actual facts and real-life sources, The Reflecting Pool, which is now having its New York premiere, sets out to examine the disparities in The 9/11 Commission Report via the fictional story of a Russian-American journalist who reluctantly works with the father of a 9/11 victim. Together, they uncover the hidden forces behind the event. Whether or not you want to believe them is entirely up to you.
