Worth it for the last 30 minutes - psychology of a conman in full bloom
I originally skipped watching this doc when I thought it was just a promotional piece for this guy, but the last 30 minutes were genuinely entertaining and definitively answered the question of whether his ideas were ever actually valid. The psychology of this conman is put on full display, in a few tense minutes a lifetime of questions and doubt are crystallized, the mystery revealed.
The last 30 minutes finishes off showing him having been semi-famous during the 80's, doing tons of press, having followers, appealing to congress, even going on Carson... then it jumps over 20 years later to 2015. After his current prototype is demonstrated, the documentarians eventually set him up with a sincere and credible investor to finally bring his idea to reality. Then at age 77 we see Newton's ugly-crazy-violent side come up where he starts a dramatic rant about not wanting to be controlled or forgotten and conclusively discredits himself once and for all.
