Storyline

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

Style over substance and the style isn´t very good
17 December 2018 | by fido23See all my reviews

Again this is everything you expect from a Jeremy Kenyon Lockyer Corbell production: Lots of archive archive footage and a few interviews that hype how awesome the subject is (in this case Bob Lazar) but have no new information whatsoever. What distinguishes this from a 15 minutes clip on Youtube is that this is augmented with lengthy introduction scenes, glitch vfx and "mysterious music" . I felt especially annoyed by the reenacted phone / sms scenes that just went on too long and you could tell it is an attempt to stretch this to feature film length. To me around 80% felt as "filler". Only thing worthwhile are the recent interviews with Bob Lazar even tho they just repeat what he already talked about before.
