Why the title "Loose Change"

Herblay FRANCE

Bonsoir ,

Does anyone know why Dylan Avery called his 911 documentary "Loose Change" ?

Did not find the reason at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loose_Change_(video) or anywhere else.

Funny and Good Question.

Good question. For all the questioning we do around here, it is kind of funny that I'd imagine most people don't know why our most famous film is titled "Loose Change"! Hope someone can fill us in on that.

Good Question

I do not know for sure but I assumed "Loose Change" refers to all the gold and silver bullion in the vaults
in the sub-levels of the towers that was apparently being removed. Dylan talks about it near the end of the film.
I am real curious what others think or know.

Why have I not heard anything about the New York Premiere of Final Cut. No review, no synopsis, no report, nada.
Did I miss something?

I think Dylan said

it was a reference to the film being a collection of scraps of evidence and general observations -- a bunch of loose change.

Some people think it refers to the story of the $2.3 trillion missing from the Pentagon, reported on 9/10:


"Those numbers are pie in the sky. The books are cooked routinely year after year," he said.

Another critic of Pentagon waste, Retired Vice Admiral Jack Shanahan, commanded the Navy's 2nd Fleet the first time Donald Rumsfeld served as Defense Secretary, in 1976.

In his opinion, "With good financial oversight we could find $48 billion in loose change in that building, without having to hit the taxpayers."

The Gag Is That It Doesn't Add Up to Much

I've always assumed that was the budget, personally.

Loose Change: Final Cut

Yeah. I assumed it was referring to the budget that they had to make the film as well. Anyway. Another great question posted here is what the hell is the word on Loose Change: Final Cut. And along those lines what is the review etc of EndGame by Alex Jones? Both of these films were on my list of things that could have a big impact on this movement. I checked the Loose Change blog page http://www.loosechange911.com and they haven't posted an update since sometime early this summer at latest. I don't get it.

I always thought it was

I always thought it was their way of saying, this is our two cents worth. Not sure, but they are great films.

Avery has stated in Q & A

Avery has stated in Q & A that it was a reference to the film's budget. He says in the History Channel doc that it is a command, as in "loose change (off its leash)"; i. e. "let change loose." Others have associated the phrase with the rescue of Morpheus in "The Matrix" film because as the saviors enter the building where he is being held, bullets fall to the floor, creating a metallic clinking sound and a security guard asks, "Loose change?" just before the big shoot-up scene happens.
