Fascinating film despite lousy editing
This could have been a 10 rating if it were not for the amateurish production quality.
Tesla's genius is the stuff of science fiction where a being of superior intelligence finds its way to earth. But it isn't fiction at all. It is a story based on highly documented work and interviews with people who knew Tesla personally and observed, first hand, demonstrations of his concepts put to work.
I would recommend this movie to those who have a natural curiosity about technology as well as to those interested in human behavior and the potential for new ideas to be thwarted by vested financial interests.
One cannot see this film without thinking about the multi-billion dollar coal and oil businesses that would be impacted by the development of clean and cheap alternative energy sources.
Given the fact that government is in the pocket of big money, the chances of another Tesla revolutionizing the energy industry must now be near zero!
