Storyline

How the US government created a myth that took over the world. ET visitors... crashed UFOs... back-engineered alien technology... the government cover-up of a secret that would change the world as we know it... These are the core elements of the modern UFO mythology, a story that has captivated farmers, princes and generals for generations, and shows no sign of loosening its grip on the popular imagination. But what if, instead of covering up the UFO story, elements in the US military had actively encouraged it as part of their Cold War counterintelligence arsenal - manufacturing the myth of the UFO as a powerful weapon of mass deception and the perfect cover for all manner of clandestine technologies and operations. Now, for the first time, some of those whose actions have directly shaped the UFO mythology, and some of their victims, tell their stories, revealing a surreal disturbing and sometimes tragic sequence of events that is part Manchurian Candidate and part Close Encounters ...

Geeky Randy's summary
18 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Unlikely UFO documentary that examines the possibility of cover-up theories being encouraged by the government in order to distract the public from observing sophisticated warfare technology, with some interviewees even claiming the government created alien/UFO hoaxes to help drive attention away from their operation. An overall spooky outing that is delivered professionally enough to make the intriguing concept seem plausible; however, pacing is a bit bumpy and some of the interviewees seem a little too tense, pulling the viewer away from the film's main focus.

*** (out of four)
