This is the longest of the four featurettes on the DVD of The Invasion(of 2007), with the others being a mere three minutes or so each, and this one being 19 minutes. It consists of interviews, clips of the film and real-life footage and images(some from the news and such). This deals with several subjects. It starts by saying what the other two versions were about(and does go into what this one is, as well). Emotions and how they are discussed in this most recent take on the old concept is gone into. This also deals with fear, the positive and negative of the media, and the science behind it. It is impressive and noteworthy how little of this documentary can be called promotional; yes, the editing can be flashy(when dealing directly with the movie, and frankly, this really uses that as nothing more than its start-off point), but it's among the smartest of what you can find on a disc(certainly one that is the release of a mainstream flick). Everything is explained immensely well, and the experts come off as credible whilst making what they're telling us entirely understandable. I would say that you should watch this after the picture itself, as there are spoilers. There is disturbing content in this. I recommend this to anyone who thinks that this sounds interesting. 7/10
