Storyline

Nikola Tesla invented or developed many of the electrical technologies which form the basis of modern life, including: alternating-current (AC) power transmission and electric motors; high-frequency (HF) communications, the basis for radio and television; neon lighting; remote radio-control; and X-rays. But his visionary genius and technical skill was countered by his lack of business acumen and eccentric personality. After dying penniless in 1943, his "missing papers" regarding the construction of a 'death ray' became the focus of international intrigue. His research on particle beam weapons led to several American and Soviet military research programs, including the Strategic Defense Initiative, known as SDI or "Star Wars". Written by yortsnave

Proof that Tesla was brilliant AND crazy!
20 October 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

There is a small but hard-core group of people out there that think that Nicola Tesla was the smartest man that ever lived. While I will gladly admit that he was one of the smarter men of our time, one fact these die-hards seem to struggle with is his sanity. They are dogmatic and will not acknowledge that Tesla was mentally ill--which he VERY clearly was. There...I had to get that off my chest.

The film does a nice job encapsulating the life of Tesla. Mostly it focuses on his brilliance in regard to electricity but it also hits a bit on his bizarreness--his weird theories, his phobias and his lack of social skills (perhaps he had what today might be seen as Asperger's). Because it gives this total picture, I would strongly recommend the film. It's well constructed, interesting and well worth your time--and does a nice job of discussing the genius of Tesla...and his wackiness.
