The Reflecting Pool
The Reflecting Pool is the first investigative drama to address 9/11 in the spirit of such films as All the President's Men and JFK. It follows an investigation by a skeptical Russian-American journalist who teams up with the father of a 9/11 victim to fact check the official version of the tragedy as documented in the 9/11 Commission Report. The results of their investigation suggest the official version as presented in the Report purposely ignored or omitted vital evidence and testimonies to protect people in political positions, including the present administration. 'Whether you see yourself as a truth seeker, patriotic American, independent thinker or voter, or just someone with bad memories of 9/11, you should make an effort to view The Reflecting Pool, a new independent movie. It is not about 9/11. It is about the credibility of the official government story about 9/11. Though a drama, it is based on meticulously researched facts about 9/11 as revealed in the bonus material on the DVD.' (Joel S. Hirschhorn) This film is an intense, sobering analysis of the most controversial tragedy of our time. Drawn from established sources and based on verifiable facts, The Reflecting Pool is a thought-provoking study of a search for truth and the profound consequences of not looking for it any further than the nightly news.

Many of us wonder if we were lied to about the twin tower attacks and if we're still being manipulated into wars of personal revenge and aggression which have created a living hell for innocent women, children and men in these oil-rich countries.
"The Reflecting Pool" also raises the specter of authoritarian regimes who massacre of civil liberties and terrorize their own citizens. The characters in this film represent the full spectrum of reactions to these events; some are skeptical, some are certain, and some don't want to know.
The acting is grounded and real, searing and affecting. The cinematography compells and holds us, the music is somber and foreboding, helping us imagine that something strange has happened in our own country.
In sum, "The Reflecting Pool" is asking us to reflect, to think, to question. Are we Americans thinking for ourselves or are we merely mirroring back the version of truth this government is benefitting from making us believe?
This film should be required viewing for anyone and everyone living in these uncertain times.
Thank you to the filmmakers for risking it all to bring people these painful questions about a day that has been used to justify the murder of far too many people and the loss of trillions of dollars. Thank you.
Films like The Reflecting Pool can have a profound effect on society. My own life was changed by Oliver Stone’s film JFK, which I saw in 1992. It disturbed me and sent me to the library to find out for myself what happened and prompted me to become a media activist. The Reflecting Pool has the potential to stir a person’s curiosity in the same way to question the official story about 9/11. The government spends hundreds of millions of dollars to sell “the war on terrorism,” which is entirely based on the official lies about 9/11. The Reflecting Pool, which was produced on a shoestring budget like most of the 9/11 truth movement, can be a stone from David’s sling that helps to bring Goliath down.
Those of us who challenge the lies of empire believe in the power of truth, that knowledge is power. The more knowledgeable we are as citizens, the more powerful we will be to withstand and rein in the assaults of the tyrannical forces that seek to terrorize and control us. Our strength lies in an unwavering quest for truth, a faith in humanity’s inherent goodness, and a willingness to overcome our feelings of separateness and join together in a common cause- The Reflecting Pool is both an introduction and invitation to join in the continuing struggle for truth, peace and justice.

Stupid movie for the tin foil crowd. The Russians should concentrate on doing a film about the Russian that was murdered in London by the KGB.Published on September 6, 2014 by Bugsy
