Conspiracy Theory VHS
Mel Gibson's character appears to be crazy to everyone but himself. Even Julia Roberts' character takes most of the movie to believe him.
What is it about director Richard Donner that Mel Gibson enjoys so much that he's appeared in five of Donner's films? Is it the on-set pranks? Could it be the big-budget perks and $20-million paychecks? Or is it just a well-stocked catering table? Whatever the case, the Lethal Weapon star and director teamed up again, along with fellow superstar Julia Roberts, for this typically glossy, entertaining but ultimately hokey thriller. Gibson plays New York cab driver Jerry Fletcher, whose wacky belief in conspiracies finally hits on a coincidental truth involving an evil figure named Jonas (Patrick Stewart) and a secret program of government-funded mind control. Roberts plays the Justice Department attorney who finally believes in Jerry's paranoid ramblings. With a plot (from LA. Confidential cowriter Brian Helgeland) that's a lot of fun as long as you don't think about it too critically, Conspiracy Theory benefits immeasurably from the charisma of its high-magnitude stars. --Jeff Shannon

(who was also composer and conductor of The Alamo soundtrack--2004). You will find yourself uplifted by the soaring brass crescendo/decrescendo as Mel Gibson's character bounds up the steps of the Justice Department at the beginning of the film...The same musical theme is revisited in the final scenes as Julia Roberts propels her horse over a jump...I've never found myself having a more emotional reaction to a movie climax as this (my mother always refers to the movie as "the one where Julia Roberts rides her white horse")...You will find yourself soaring with Julia and the music. Not only have I just purchased the recently released Blu-ray copy but have owned the soundtrack CD since the nineties...I highly recommend both the CD and movie; they will not disappoint you!
There is irrefutable evidence the Father of the Bush family was working for the Rothschild Banks and the Nazi Banks at the same time in the US during WWII. This means the Zionist bankers in the US and GB who conspired to create Israel, also funded Hitler's rise to power for that end. The predictably ensuing Jewish sympathies created Zionist Israel's Jewish myth in the American mind. That is what it is, a myth created to sustain a worldwide coup.
The Jews were originally duped by Zionism, and later bought off with land and money. The Zionists authored and manifested every abuse the Jews suffered in WWII, and for the sole purpose of the forced intrusion of Israel into the birthplace of the big 3 world religions. It was a militaristic and psychological game-changer in what they see as a Geo-political chess game.
We all fell victim to it. Poor Palestine for having to deal with the hairiest end of this colossal lie. We sympathize arbitrarily with the Native American Indian's while each of us is forced to donate thousands of our hard earned dollars to Israel each year in obvious (and not so obvious) taxes and contracts.
Prescott Bush... What can I say, but that he is the American father of this coup, if their ever was a contest. He made this America possible for all of us.
-Created the CIA/Bush dynasty that killed JFK for his meddling in Dimona, Israel's stolen nuclear program. JFK finally nailed his coffin shut by signing Executive order 01111. These were some of the most valiant/heroic moves ever made by any American in the face of this Monolithic Conspiracy. Hell, JFK even dedicated an entire speech to waking the American people to this very thing, yet we just sat there sucking our thumbs in the middle of a coup when they shot him.
-Helped Saudi-Israelian leadership and Intel pull off all three 9/11/2001 World Trade Center demolitions. Google: "Urban Moving Systems" and "WTC Israeli Art Students"
-Bush family friend, Saudi Prince Bandar, allowed the 9/11 hijackers to stay at his place in Florida during their "flight training".
-The classic cover-up (9/11 Omission Report).
-Dick Cheney's Stand down order to our fighters.
-Rumsfeld's announcement the night before that they had misplaced 2.3 TRILLION of our dollars, and a military drone explodes in the very accounting office of the Pentagon chasing the evidence the next morning.
-In the "The Project for a New American Century" (PNAC) they told us to our faces what needed to happen next.
-The Wolfowitz Doctrine.
-Bush Zionist, Phillip Zelikow, misleading the Chairmen of their Omission Report, and shredding away all testimony from over 70 official firefighter eyewitnesses of demolition explosives being used.
The Bush CIA 10 years after having a Bush family friend, John Hinckley, fail to assassinate Reagan in 1981, the Bush's were finally in a presidential position to kill the United Nations' Resolution 3376, exposing the Zionist plot as a racist agenda.
Zionism was internationally and officially recognized/designated as form of "racial discrimination, or racism" for my entire life until I was 17 years old. Stopping this International recognition is something the Bush family would like to have accomplished back in 1981, had their assassination attempt been successful on Reagan. Unfortunately for the Hinckley's, Bush's, Rothschilds, and their army of Isreali Zionists puppets, Reagan obviously lived through their assault on the presidency,
The CIA/Israel/Rothschilds were only able to salvage out of the failed hit was the "Brady Bill". The Brady bill worked to limit our gun rights -also a directive of this foreign coup. The Bush family made good on their promise to have the assassin tried as "mentally incompetent". Hinckley was finally allowed to walk free last year. What suckers we all have been.
The Hinckley family operated out of Evergreen Colorado, and were very high ranking members of the Standard Oil Corporation, which was owned by the Rothshilds. The Rothschild cartel created modern Zionism, Israel, and the events of 9/11. Now this racist movement somehow just achieved international legislation making it a crime to slander they're "previously internationally recognized" racist agenda.
This is what a successful modern global invasion looks like. Who would've thought American bravery would have finally been called upon in our lifetime? Who would've guessed that we would be this emotionally unprepared to do a damn thing about it? We were never taught that our rate of inflation was the variable interest rate of our Rothschild ownership contract, for instance, or that their agents have immunity from any form of prosecution here. It is literally the perfect plantation for the next thousand years, and none of us saw it being built. They became experts at distracting and deceiving us, which is the motto of the Israeli Mossad -"By way of deception thou shalt do war"
Like taking candy from little spoiled American Goyim babies. We open our wallets to pay our war-thirsty private foreign Federal Reserve/Israeli Rothschild masters like their very own limitless ATM. This happened 300 years ago to our great great great grandparents. That's why they left England/GB. That's why we started America and its protective constitution. Anybody that reads the original history books will see that boil to the top. So, WTF America? Seriously? Are we going to take this crap?
So, as unrealistic as this premise may sound in the real world--Mel Gibson and Julia Roberts make it look all too believable--a difficult feat that not many acting duos could have pulled off as convincingly without appearing contrived. The acting range of both actors is a sight to behold. It works, because despite everything that is to be desired with regards to Roberts--her ability to empathize with Gibson's character Jerry, is in the end, her most desirable trait of all--a trait that has won my heart over many times over. Sure there are scores of good thrillers with bits of romance interspersed--yet not very many pure psycho thrillers with believable romance interwoven throughout the entire fabric of the plot. The film is so mesmerizing that one may forget that Jerry has major psychological issues--causing viewers such as myself to be gullible and believe just about everything he says regardless of his erratic behavior--well that's until the wicked plot twist which comes during the third act which causes viewers to doubt everything Jerry has said--followed by another plot twist near the finale that reconfirms what we knew about Jerry all along.
This film is also quite entertaining because it turns the damsel-in-distress archetype on its head--with Gibson who is supposedly playing the knight-in-shinning-armor archetype--yet is in a constant state of distress--while damsel Roberts comes to the aid of the protagonist during pivotal moments of the film. Some of the film's best comic relief moments occur when Alice decides to help Jerry. Without question this is my fave film directed by Richard Donner, whose impressive credits include, but are not limited to: Superman, Lethal Weapon quadrilogy, Maverick, Ladyhawke, 16 Blocks, Radio Flyer, Assassins and Scrooged. Only wished there were more romance thrillers on par with this gem.
Blu-ray.com reviewer Michael Reuben has recently rated the quality of the video and audio transfer 4.5 out of 5. Not bad at all!!! Like many of the others have mentioned previously, this film has a great original score and I'm grateful that this Blu-ray transfer will do its audio justice. Very much looking forward to watching this as soon as I receive it in the mail.
