I’m “biast” (con): nothing
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
(My Ratings posts are a quick way for me to share my reaction to a film. This post will be updated if/when I ever write a review. Feel free to discuss the movie in depth in the comments section.)
Independent film criticism needs your support to survive. I receive a small commission when you purchase almost anything at iTunes (globally) and at Amazon (US, Canada, UK):
There is a conspiracy theory that states that conspiracy theorists are themselves tools of The Man: when a conspiracy theorist espouses a position, it immediately becomes less plausible.
What the hell is this movie about? Something about engine or fuel fumes potentially leaking into the cabins of some airliners? The plot synopses on most of the film sites are ridiculously cagey, like student filmmakers wary of giving away their big surprise (which turns out to be not that big and not that surprising). Even the Wikipedia page on this reads like it was cribbed directly from a (badly written) press kit.
As the Wikipedia page notes, it’s about aerotoxic syndrome. The topic would be better served with a documentary.
I found that, buried though it was in the middle of that mess of a Wiki page. (The aerotoxic syndrome page, though, makes it pretty clear than aerotoxic syndrome probably isn’t a thing.) I was just commenting on the horrible amateurism of the plot blurbs available on this movie.
