In 2006, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Lawrence Wright staged "My Trip to Al-Qaeda," a one-man performance that explored the moral dilemmas he encountered while researching his best-selling book,"The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11." Culled from more than 600 interviews and 4,100 pages of notes, the play integrated his journalistic insights with personal stories, live footage, and photos of the places he visited during his extensive research. In MY TRIP TO AL-QAEDA, Academy Award® winner Alex Gibney brings Wright's performance to the big screen and chronicles his quest to understand the history and the modern incarnation of radical Islamic terrorism. Through Wright's probing efforts to come to terms with his and his country's role in the chain of events that led to 9/11, MY TRIP TO AL-QAEDA sheds crucial light on terrorism, Islam and America.
Waste of Time
Don't waste your time or money. This is a meek study of how the USA is somehow responsible for acts of terror.
It's rare to find an objective point of view of what really happen. Been a patriot is one thing, but telling the truth is an other. I think this is a great documentary..
One of the best documentaries I've ever seen. It offers unbiased, objective views from both sides of the issue.
