Produced, directed and written by Richard Linklater
A montage of interconnected conversations and monologues, one is a rant on UFO conspiracies, one is on Kennedy assassination conspiracies and one later conversation is about the freemasons:
Dan Kratochvil : "The reason these guys are being forgotten though, is that they're not freemasons. The masons are the ones that control history. Look at it, every... every president but one: mason. Every man thats walked on the moon... thirty-third degree mason."
Nolan Morrison (b. 1953) : "And look at the Warren Commission, a Shriner convention without go-carts."
Dan Kratochvil : "Exactly. The slate of American history needs to be wiped clean. We need to start all over again. Lets put Larry Fieman in the history books. Lets put Squeaky Fromme on the one dollar bill."
Nolan Morrison : "Least we ought to get that masonic pyramid bullshit off the back." [01:26:40]
Jerry Deloney plays a conspiracy theorist who gives a monologue on NASA, a suppressed transmission from the first moon landing and "this secret group, you know, this group that is in charge of the government." But he doesn't mention the freemasons. [00:13:27 - 00:19:03]
By unrelated coincidence, on the 2-disc DVD release, the label art for Disc Two is a photograph of an Austin, Texas storm sewer access cover featuring a large pentagram in its centre.
