Jeffrey M (gb) wrote: Kristina Borjesson's documentary is a resoundingly compelling indictment of the government's official findings for TWA 800, conclusively showing that an internal explosion occurring in the center fuselage was not and could not have been the cause of the crash. Instead, through painstaking research and witness testimony, we see that it was, in fact, three external objects that hit the plane.What makes this documentary so powerful is the sheer number of witnesses, family members, and even lead investigators during the four-year long inquiry that are interviewed, each exposing the fraud, incompetence, and willing disregard for proper protocol during the investigation. Spearheaded by Tom Stalcup, a scientist who spent years studying the crash, the documentary shows numerous experts that recount evidence being altered, erroneous animations shown to the public, and what they really saw. Witnesses relate how their testimony was alerted, and even the blatant intimidation they received. All of this is weaved together in a cohesive manner, with a strong emotional undercurrent. In the end, it's a film that avoids speculation, sticks to the facts, and argues its case so well, there can hardly be any doubt.A must see.4.5/5 Stars
