This documentary lacks a global perspective on "spirituality" via alleged E.T. visitations for a mainstream viewing audience (paying high admission prices, who knew that spirituality can be expensive?). First of all, most of the interviewees were Americans, wasting this production's sources like a Christian U.F.O. investigator based in South Korea (I guess E.T.s don't visit Asia?) not to mention that the "Alien Intrusion" book writer is Australian. It makes one wonder that E.T.s only have a thing for white Americans, or lost Christians.
Also there seems to be quite of bit in debunking the general abductee experience as a "sign" from Jesus or "demonic " manipulating wiping out a supposedly global spiritual experience with E.T.- like callings from a higher spirit (whether it be Christian or not). And yes, one can feel compassion from viewing these selected abductee (now born-again Christians) interviews, they suffered emotional traumas whilst trying to piece their lives back together.
At times, the documentary wastes valuable on-screen time where it could of shown a P.O.V. by global spiritualists (not just Christian) that professed in receiving "possible" interdismensional or outer space signals from a higher spiritual consciousness (instead what we get were projected title cards with Biblical quotes). Do not get me wrong I watched this film (did not read the book though) with an open mind in fact the first half of film's archival scientific material was interesting.
Then it ends up feeling like an investigation led by a "Baby Boom" (and Christian-identified) scientific generation evident with the plenitude references to 70s academic theory/pop culture (even the aliens were depicted in a kinda of Spielberg "Close Encounter" way). During in the screening, I had seen one viewer leave when Bible quotes appeared plus some giggles were also heard.
