A 1950's Howard Hughes employee-confidante, George Van Tassel, uses alien guidance and Nikola Tesla's ideas to build a time machine -- The Integratron. Is he deluded, or could it actually work? As waves of devotees join him in the California desert, the FBI gets involved fearing insurrection and possibly more. Nearing completion, Van Tassel's tale and the Integratron meet an unexpected end: the "workings" of the dome finally emerge. The unusual story is told by historians, astronomers and current residents of Joshua Tree, including the stewards of the Integratron, the Karl Sisters, and a galaxy of believers and skeptics alike.

I have been a fan of the works of Iain M. Banks since I was a teenager. I found the films he made in the 1970s and 1980s to be fascinating, imaginative, and funny. This documentary is just as good. It covers the history of the Banks' work, the man himself, and the people he influenced. I enjoyed it. It does not try to cover the entire Banks' work, and I do not believe it was meant to do that. It is a good documentary that is very entertaining. I would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of Iain M. Banks or anyone who is interested in his work.

Very nice documentary. It presents a huge historical scientific community about the past, present and future, and how they were affected by the two cosmic cataclysms of 1999 and 2001. We learn that both events were foretold by the ancient Egyptians thousands of years ago. Some of the experts believe that the Maya could have foreseen the future, while others believe that the Mayans were mostly dumbfounded by the events. All that is interesting to watch, and what makes it unique is that it is presented as a documentary, and that it is quite self-explanatory, although you can't go see it in a cinema. A bit of background is given, about the origins of the world, and the origins of the human race, but the human race is only briefly mentioned. It has a somewhat historical feel about it, but it is not really explained in detail. Most of the time, I was watching the presentation and not the history. What is explained is also not explained very well, especially if you've never seen any of the documentaries that it is based on. The documentary does not give us a lot of background information about the two events. It is also difficult to understand the two-dimensional science presented in the documentary, because they really don't make a lot of sense. You have to see the documentary to know what I mean. If you want to learn about the past and the present, you could watch a few documentaries about it. Personally, I think it's more interesting to watch documentaries about the events themselves, because they are quite easy to understand, and because they are based on research and have a lot of context. I give it a 8 out of 10.

If you are not a climate change denier, and you're a science-minded person, you should definitely watch this documentary. The narrator, author, and an all-star cast of scientific experts (including the most well-known climate scientist alive, Richard Lindzen) will go into a lot of detail about why climate change is bad, and how humans are the root of the problem. But it's not just a 'war on coal' or a 'war on oil' documentary. It's also a call to arms for environmental conservation. You will hear all the claims you will hear, and you will also see what's actually happening in real-time, so that when the alarm bells ring, you will know what to do. The environmental stories are fascinating, and the information given is interesting. The current problems are explained with a realistic look, and that makes them more engaging than the facts would otherwise be. The music is also great, and the cinematography is excellent. I really recommend this documentary, especially to anyone who cares about environmental issues. I give it a 9 out of 10.

I find myself drawn to films that offer different points of view. This is one of those. The movie is the first of a trilogy that offers a variety of perspectives, not just those who are on the "frontlines" of the conflict, but those who are marginalized and must choose their side. The director speaks with an earnestness that goes beyond the typical view of war being a tragedy of bodies and ruined lives. This is a tough movie to sit through, but if you give it a chance, you will come out with a much better sense of what happened. Like I said, it is not easy to watch, but you will come out with a better sense of what really happened. The movie runs about 2 hours and 30 minutes, but I found myself wanting to watch it again. I felt like I was able to relate to the characters, and at the end of the movie I wanted to know what the story was about. The director does a good job at capturing the essence of the Vietnam War. There is the realism that there is no question that the war will be there in twenty years, and that everyone who was there will have their story told. There is the discomfort and pain that the war inflicts on the men and women who were there, and the moral and cultural impacts that it has on people's lives. There is also the fact that the war was a great "peculiar institution," one that served the national interest and was responsible for the deaths of over thirty thousand Vietnamese soldiers and civilians. The people who died and the people who were traumatized by this war will not be forgotten.

This is the most enjoyable, thought provoking and comprehensive documentary I have seen about the UFO phenomenon. The interviewer and producer of the film speak with a large number of people from various countries around the world about their beliefs and experiences with UFOs. They explain that they have been contacted by many people who have experienced UFOs, both terrestrial and extraterrestrial, and that their testimonies are based on real experience and in many cases corroborated. There are many disturbing facts and incidents that people are afraid to tell. They explain that there are a lot of myths and misunderstandings about UFOs, and that there are also many false beliefs that have been held by the public. This documentary also addresses many important scientific and physical issues related to UFOs. They explain that there is no scientific evidence that suggests that UFOs are "our planet's landing gear", that they are "an artificial visitation", or that they are in any way "the most advanced beings on earth". These are the beliefs of many people, and if they are wrong, there are many legitimate scientific explanations for their existence. Most of the people interviewed have been contacted by a variety of UFOs, and they have heard various explanations, but they have also heard stories of people who have witnessed UFOs. The main reason they decided to film the film was that they had all experienced UFOs, and they wanted to know more about the reality of UFOs. It is a great documentary, and is worth watching.
