Out of the Blue
The Definitive Investigation of the UFO Phenomenon

Producer James Fox and his team travel the globe, interviewing eyewitnesses and high-ranking military & government personnel about their UFO knowledge and experiences. As narrator, actor Peter Coyote guides the viewer through these interviews and through new and historic film footage & information related to the UFO Phenomenon.

Out of the Blue is a feature-length documentary on the UFO phenomenon. The film is narrated by Peter Coyote and attempts to show, through interviews with members of the scientific community, eye witnesses and high-ranking military and government personnel, that some unidentified flying objects could be of extraterrestrial origin and that secrecy and ridicule are used to shroud the UFO issue.

There's a follow up movie named "I know What I Saw" by James Fox, which extends upon the testimonies given in Out of the Blue.

Out of the Blue, which first aired on the Sci-Fi Channel, is an excellent, sound, and sober documentary that ends up being as much about the cover-up as the UFO phenomenon itself, which is only to be expected since the two cannot be separated until the dark veil of truth is finally torn asunder.

While you can't even begin to examine more than a few of the most compelling UFO cases in such a short amount of time, the video does offer a good overview of the history of UFO activity and highlights a select number of important sightings and events from various parts of the world.

A vast array of experts (scientists, astronauts, cosmonauts, physicists, pilots, military officers, government officials) are consulted, and many competent witnesses describe what they saw or experienced.

Roswell, Rendlesham Forest, the 1976 Iranian air force encounter, and the more recent Phoenix Lights are all mentioned, but the scientific rigor of the presentation precludes any mention of more sensational topics such as alien abduction.

Among the most significant (but less famous) events touched upon are Gordon Cooper's filming of a craft landing and taking off from a California military base in 1955 (the film disappeared after it got to D.C.).

Footage of a Trident missile being blown apart by laser-beam-like weapons from a UFO, and the disabling of 10-20 nuclear missiles in Montana missile silos by a UFO which hovered over the base in broad daylight).

The second half of the video really gets to the heart of the official cover-up, wherein, in America, a completely covert group even denies requests for information from presidents (Carter), senators (Goldwater), Congressmen (Steven Schiff of New Mexico), and FBI directors (including J. Edgar Hoover).

While some provocative information has somehow been obtained via the Freedom of Information Act, the paper trail of government lies extends as far as the eye can see.

Typified by the infamous Condon report, an "objective" study led by an academic who made clear his unrestrained bias both before and after he wrote his bogus summary of the group's findings (findings which included several unexplained cases with a high probability of being extraterrestrial in origin).

The government's contempt for and ridicule of those who would press them on the UFO issue is best typified by Arizona's disgrace of an ex-governor, Fyfe Symington, who - five hours after vowing a serious investigation into the source of mysterious lights seen by thousands of concerned citizens - held a live press conference in which he dressed his chief of staff in an absurd alien costume and had a big laugh identifying this "alien" as the culprit.

Basically, the only people who won't take anything away from this documentary are close-minded skeptics who would not believe in the vaguest possibility of UFOs even if one landed on their foot. Out of the Blue truly raises the bar for all quality UFO documentaries now and in the future.
