DVD REVIEW: SIRIUS / CERT: 15 / DIRECTOR: AMARDEEP SINGH KALEKA / SCREENPLAY: AMARDEEP SINGH KALEKA, LAURIE KNAPP / STARRING: THOMAS JANE, JACK AUMAN, CORRADO BALDUCCI / RELEASE DATE: MARCH 9TH

The United States (aka the World) is governed by the Military Industrial Complex (MIC) and by a cartel of four powerful banks that have a vested interest in oil. Aliens from outer space have visited us in the past, as recorded in religious texts and renaissance paintings, and they have returned again because we started testing and using atomic bombs. The aliens are rightly concerned that we will destroy ourselves and other planets. That’s the agenda set out by Dr Steven Greer, who is shown by this documentary as a hero crusading against the conspiracy that hides the truth about these alien visitations and their free energy technology that could easily release us from the grip of the banks and the MIC, and the mainstream media of course.

Greer, a former emergency room doctor, is shown lecturing to an audience that hangs on to every word he says and believes the films of blobs of light he shows on the screen behind him are the vehicles of extraterrestrial visitors. He acknowledges Dr Allen Hynek’s close encounters classification system, the one that Steven Spielberg used to title his Close Encounters of the Third Kind movie, and adds his own close encounter of the fifth kind. This encompasses the concept of seeking out and establishing psychic/telepathic communication with extraterrestrials through meditation. Is Greer siruis, sorry serious? Is this a spoof? There is nothing particularly new about his ideas - George Adamski, and many other contactees of the 1950s who said they met the occupants of spacecraft, had rides in them to nearby planets and were warned about the dangers of the atomic bomb.

We can dismiss Greer’s encounter group meetings at remote UFO hotspots as New Age mumbo jumbo, and his special workshops that teach you about ‘The Science of Consciousness and higher states of consciousness and how it applies to us & to Interstellar Civilizations and their technologies’, but the resourceful Greer has some solid evidence for the existence of aliens. This evidence is nothing less than a miniature alien corpse. The PR for the film promised that it would present “paradigm shifting physical evidence of a medically and scientifically analyzed DNA sequenced humanoid creature of unknown classification.” Though in reality there is no conclusive proof it is of an alien origin, and the media is blamed for ignoring its existence. All part of the cover-up to keep the established powers in control.

Using crowd sourcing to fund this production, it is a good-looking and well-presented film, but it is all based on a stack of suppositions to support the idea of a utopian future where we’ll communicate with extraterrestrials and enjoy the benefits of free energy. For sceptics its shows how an ET-based cult can be created and sustained in a world where the word of authority is regarded with deep suspicion.
