    Bob Lazar: Area 51 and Flying Saucers

    Maybe the most compelling and fascinating story I've heard on the subject of Area 51, here presented by a documentarian seemingly intent on discrediting it by attaching gratuitious bells and whilstles. When Bob is speaking, I do get the impression that he is saying what he believes, and that his story has remained essentially unchanged for over thirty years is certainly a testament to something.

    Still one of the most utterly indefinable, compellingly frustrating and infinitely intriguing films I've ever seen. And even as someone who is completely detached from religion, I find that The Ninth Configuration has much more to say about theological grappling than all 161 minutes of Scorsese's Silence.

    R.I.P. William Peter Blatty.
