Abstract:

"Tens of millions of people have seen films like Loose Change and Zeitgeist, yet this is the first book to offer a guide to the weird, disturbing, hilarious and frequently mind-blowing genre of conspiracy cinema. Each chapter of Conspiracy Cinema offers readers an overview of a particular conspiracy theory (the Moon landings, 9/11 etc), with a synopsis of both the 'official' and conspiratorial positions, before moving on to a selection of the worst, the best and the most outlandish films that deal with the issue in question, both considering them as works of documentary filmmaking, and as arguments in their own right."--Publisher description.
