In the old footage at the beginning, President Dwight D. Eisenhower is signing the papers accepting Hawaii as a state. It was the 50th state but the sign seen in the montage said 49th state. See more »
There was a time I knew everything in the sky. Every satellite, every constellation, souvenirs of space walks and astronauts and rockets launched by NASA in the '60s. As a kid, I looked up and felt the future. It belonged to me.

This movie is somehow all over the place, threads begin but do not end, connections exist but how and why is not explained. I felt like I was watching a movie that is great inside the head of the writer/director but he knows the story to well and forgets to tell us half of it.It's like it is trying to be everything for everybody and while doing that failing in all aspects. The whole military plot thing is strange, lots of people are just there and we are never told why or even who they are.
This is not a feel good movie, it is a feel strange movie leaving you with lots of questions, the main one being why?
