Movie Info

CALLING ALL EARTHLINGS explores a mid-century UFO cult led by one-time Howard Hughes confidante, George Van Tassel. Van Tassel claimed to have combined alien guidance with the writings of inventor/physicist Nikola Tesla, and other controversial science, to build an electromagnetic time machine he dubbed "The Integratron." Was he insane? Or could the dome really break through the boundaries of space, time, and energy? FBI agents worked against Van Tassel and the alternative community that formed out of his work. Would he finish the Integratron before the government finished him?

[A] brisk, sometimes glib documentary about Van Tassel and his followers.

It's all faintly ridiculous, but charming, like people talking about the afterlife right before last call.

The film skirts the edges of its story like a garrulous pothead, its interviews never quite getting to the point.

Berman's failure to fully explore his colorful cast would be forgivable if that main narrative were clearer. But Earthlings is rather scattered.

Most of the interviewees are, let's say, colourful and eccentric, but they all believed. See you in the stars!
