fantastic fun
15 December 2015 | by soilmantedSee all my reviews

Despite thinking it is unnecessary, the police chief dutifully complies when he is ordered by a higher-up to interview everyone who has claimed to have seen the flying sauce. What follows provides insight into human motivation and human nature, and is also hysterically funny.

The story uses the supposedly non-existent object of the flying saucer like a therapist uses a rorshak inkblot. But of course, while rorshak inkblots are real printed copies of real inkblots, there is no such thing as a flying saucer. So what is it that is stimulating people's imaginations? The whole movie is a delight. One of my favorite movies of all times.
