12 July 2012 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

I found Jon Ronson's 'Crazy Rulers of the World' truly fascinating. For three years he researched paranormal experiments of the US Army. As a result he produced this three part documentary series and wrote a book called 'The Men Who Stare at Goats'. There is also a Hollywood feature film directed and starred by George Clooney, that goes by the same name.

The series tracks persons and phenomenas of the 'First Earth Battallion', as well as paranormal activities of the intelligence community. Jonson interviews high ranking army officers and other individuals, who played a central role in the subsequent events. He also investigates the origins of some contemporary applications such as the use of music as torture.

The end result is a gripping tale that starts from curious and progresses to bizarre. Jonson interviews some fantastic individuals, who seem surprisingly at ease in front of the camera. While 10 stars may seem an exaggeration to some, I found my self thoroughly satisfied and entertained at the end, with no complaints. It's a shame this series hasn't had a wider release.
