The whole UFO thing – it’s just US government misinformation to put people off the scent of real Airforce high-tech, isn’t it? Or is that what they want us to think? Maybe the conspiracy theory is just a cover for the real story about the creepy little guys from Sirius. Or is that what they want us to think? This documentary offers no definitive answers as it explores the hall-of-mirrors intersection between geeks and spooks, but there’s plenty here to intrigue connoisseurs of paranoia. It’s just a pity there’s not a clearer narrative to draw in beginners: at times it all feels inescapably arcane.
