The UFO Documentary That Steven Spielberg Finds “Compelling”

"With great curiosity, I watched the documentary... and found it compelling."


There is a lot of interesting content regarding the unidentified flying object phenomenon. I find it fascinating and have been interested in the subject for more than two decades. I have seen UFOs on numerous occasions performing maneuvers in the sky that could not attribute to anything I was aware of that existed on Earth. The object I witnessed were not helicopters. They were not airplanes, balloons, or drones.

I assume that there is technology on Earth the public is unaware of. However, I am also a vivid believer that some of the objects seen in the skies of our beautiful planet might be objects that came from other worlds. Considering the above, I love a good UFO/alien-related movie or series.

Moment of contact, I know what I saw

Certain documentaries are a level above all others. One of the more recent ones is Moment of Contact, and director James Fox recently featured the documentary. Moment of Contact recounts several interesting UFO sightings, among them the famous Brazilian Roswell in the town of Varginha. The documentary is impressive, and James Fox has recently taken to Twitter to show off a letter that legendary director Steven Spielberg wrote in response to one of his earlier works, specifically a 2014 documentary called I know what I saw.

James Fox Tweeted, “This is a letter from Steven Spielberg to Larry King — it was a response to Mr. King after he sent Spielberg a copy of my doc, I Know What I Saw. I wanted to use the quote, “compelling” to help promote it, but his publicist asked me not to. Read it carefully.”



Steven Spielberg has certainly been interested in the UFO topic for years. He directed Close Encounters of the Third Kind in 1977, becoming a legendary movie for people who love the extraterrestrial genre. Another epic movie we all love is E.T. The Extraterrestrial from 1982. Critics hail this movie as the greatest science fiction movie ever made, and it tells the story of a true friendship between a strange alien on Earth and a human kid.
