Monsters from the Id
Inspired by Patrick Lucianio and Cary Coville's Smokin' Rockets, Dave Gargani's documentary Monsters from the Id weaves together clips from over thirty classic science fiction films and expert interviews to examine the cultural and psychological impact of 1950s sci-fi cinema. After exploring the role that the modern scientist has in shaping a nation's future, the filmmakers ask where science inspiration can be found in the early 21st Century.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"There's so little focus to any of it that the end of the movie forgets what the beginning of the movie set out to say."
