Movie Info

A guy with an interest in news that slips past the major media outlets stumbles upon the biggest and most dangerous unreported story of the decade in this independent fusion of film noir and political thriller. Tom Flynn (Adam Nee) runs a leftist bookstore and coffee shop in New York, and in his spare time publishes a zine devoted to conspiracy theories relating to the September 11th terrorist attacks. Tom's writings lead him to a meeting with Kasia (Elina Löwensohn), a beautiful woman from Eastern Europe who has learned more than is safe about the facts behind 9/11. Through Kasia, Tom discovers damning evidence that links American intelligence with the terrorists who masterminded the attacks, but his efforts to bring the information to a public forum make him a man with a price on his head. Able Danger received its world premiere at the 2008 Rotterdam Film Festival.

Critic Reviews for Able Danger

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

Modeled on noir and executed on acid, Able Danger is a paranoid fantasy of geek superheroics that lunges desperately for political relevance.

September 10, 2008 | Rating: 1.5/5

Able Danger's various generic elements and ambitions, while successful on their own, resist melding into a successful pastiche.

More than just a self-referential lark, Able Danger tells a smart, inventive story.

November 27, 2008 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Paul Krik's stylish, darkly comic conspiracy thriller takes its title from a classified military program alleged to have identified four 9/11 hijackers prior to the terrorist attacks, and borrows its gleaming B&W look from The Maltese Falcon.

Director Paul Krik would prefer if we all compared his feature-length debut to the practically minimalist The Parallax View, but Able Danger is really a hipster version of Soderbergh's inane The Good German.

Strange and sometimes dull story of the indie thriller film with unknown actors & actresses.
