For those of You who are not in the topic, Sirius is a documentary, released on Earth Day 2013 (God bless the Earth!) that main goal is to shed some light on the world’s troubles of today, particularly this one’s being covered very poorly by the big media, or actually we should say not covered at all.
One may ask – “and why is that”? Well, very good question on which there is no easy answer, watching Sirius however may bring us all closer to it.
First impression? We expected something different. We expected fireworks, heavy language, accusations and war rhetoric’s, probably because of other productions related to NWO/UFO subject – as we first classified Sirius – which there usually full of it, and also because Sirius trailer also indicates it. Instead of it we have a tidy, balanced document focusing on the solution rather than a problem. Quite unexpectedly (Great thing – expectations) prominent part of the movie focuses on the figure of Steven M. Greer – who he is, what is he doing, why is he doing it and why, if we want to learn something about cool stuff such as ET’s, sooner or later we’re going to stumble upon this fellow. Apart from him being a very interesting figure worth covering, this approach allows one to see worlds affairs from the perspective of specified person, makes whole thing more human, as well as easier to identify with it. To see the big picture, how somebody is struggling along the way, that raises trust and gives a much-needed credibility.
In general with every main matter the movie touches, for example The Atacama Humanoid, it also introduce us to people who deal with this matter, they talk a little about themselves and have a lot of time to give full statement of what are they doing, like Garry Nolan on mentioned Atacama Humanoid. Less graphical show, more real talks – we consider this to be a very strong point of the movie.
In the same time, here and there, some fragments of interviews are being placed, which gives just a little glimpse on some matters and later there are not followed at all. Whether the director didn’t want to make the movie longer, or scare off the audience too much, we forgive him.
The perception of Sirius depends largely of one’s state of knowledge of worlds current affairs and opinion of them. Do we believe that, right now in 2013, we as a humanity are in possession of technologies allowing us to pay much smaller bills for energy that we consume? If yes, then Sirius is a sound documentary and we are happy that somebody is finally doing something about it. However, if we believe that we didn’t make any progress from the middle ages and burning gas, coal and oil is the best it gets, then we perceive Sirius as a pile of crap and feel that we lost 9.99$ to bunch of cunning, shady individuals. Do we feel like being only one intelligent civilization in the universe is a waste of space, and it’s quite likely that there are some folks out there, maybe even technologically able to travel to our beautiful planet, and maybe even curious whats happening here?
Or we believe that all this other star systems, galaxies, planets and what have you, are empty, and there are waiting to be colonized by us, and their oil taken.
Bye the way, in which group are You?
At any rate, Sirius is a nice movie, easy to digest by anybody, not only by the person with developed strange interests. Invite some friends over, go to yekra.com, pay 9.99$, hope they spend this money on something useful, spread comfortably on the couch, hit play and start dreaming..
