This doc is about the disinformation campaign that the government instituted regarding UFO stuff going on in their air force bases. It's largely an examination of one guy named Richard Doty who worked in manipulating and disseminating a lot of the false information that UFO nuts have grabbed onto.
Doty is an interesting interview, but most of this movie feels like something I'd see on the syfy network and the film doesn't even attempt to answer anything but rather convolute itself and give the impression that the truth is unobtainable. While the bare fact that various government agencies have active disinformation departments is interesting, by the end of the doc I was kind of questioning whether this whole movie is a waste of time or not. I guess that's how some people felt about Room 237 last year, but that had the film and Kubrick to anchor my interest whereas this is kind of just some kooky interviews in hotel rooms.
