A ufologist's variant of The Da Vinci Code, except without all the action and faux scholarship.

Audience Reviews for The Appearance of a Man

I thoroughly enjoyed this one. I wasn't expecting much as most indie movies you see online aren't that great. This one was well made and I enjoyed the innovative camera work. They produced a thought-provoking movie with what appears to be a minimal budget. I will say that the pacing did sag in a couple of spots - however - it was nothing that ruined the experience. Overall.. very interesting. I would recommend it for a Sunday afternoon step away from mainstream fare.

There comes a point, about an hour into the film, in which a shirtless man is standing alone in the desert. After that odd but brief scene, this movie stopped making any kind of sense.
