The Visit

The Visit

Michael Madsen’s The Visit may be the most unique, interesting take on the alien invasion film you’re likely to come across. It is, after all, a speculative documentary, which is also something of an oddity in itself. Taking an abstract approach, Madsen’s poses a hypothetical incursion from beyond our world to those people who would have to figure out how to deal with such an event. He asks government officials, members of the media, and even the United Nations how they would go about approaching extraterrestrials, and what they would do to avoid the mass panic that the human race is prone to, especially when there is no previous history to look to for inspiration. What do we tell them about ourselves (do we unveil good and bad equally?), what are their intentions, how do we even discern what they want? Gorgeously filmed and methodically paced, this is definitely one we’re intrigued to check out for ourselves.
