Thanks for the link! This is an interesting story. I would have sent Mr. Lansberry a postcard if he was still alive.

Interesting follow-up to this comment from a thread a few days ago. Thanks.

The film tried to address some aspects of mind control as plausible, until Lansbury mentioned the transmitter in his tooth. At that point the video just flashed up a bunch of X-rays and then went on. It seemed like the filmmaker wanted the audience to come away with the feeling that there was a transmitter without backing it up with evidence. (Evidence that I'm assuming didn't exist at all).

Nice use of mind control by the filmmaker.

Yea, it vacillated between ham-fisted and almost not ham-fisted in the ol' tin foil dept. The Buñuel thing was cool though.

Yeah, the guy's crazy, but this is still pretty interesting. Thanks.

I thought the Unabomber-Murray connection was rather fascinating.
