Former government physicist Bob Lazar made headlines world-wide in 1989 when he came forward with his account of reverse-engineering an alien spacecraft for the US military. The reason the public even knows the name Area 51 is because Lazar came forward about the work he did at the formerly secret military base. His testimony remains the most controversial and important UFO story of all time. This film intimately chronicles the challenges and travails of a cosmic whistleblower. Burdened with a revolutionary secret, he had to choose between his oath to his country or his conscience. Corbell's film explores Lazar's groundbreaking claims and the devastating impact it has had on his life over the course of the last 30 years, including rare and never before revealed footage guaranteed to alter the landscape of the debate. He blew the whistle, shocked the world, then went silent - until now. Written by Jeremy Kenyon Lockyer Corbell

I feel sorry for Bob Lazar, regardless as to whether his story is real or not, this documentary was dreadful it's tough to call it a documentary.

You can find all of his interviews online in their entirety, without the continuous garbage. The guy who interviews him just, doesn't get it it seems, and it's over used "dramatic music" is just ridiculous.

Some of the things the intervier asked is just idiotic. It's so painful. I just feel sorry for when Bob watches this and see's how dramatic it is and how his story has been butchered.

There's a particular podcast he's been on recently that's lots better, but is sadly still plagued by the interviewer/"documentary" maker
