Shades Of Gray: Terrible Movies #54

Ineffective continuity editing that doesn't ensure coherent storyline and punny intertitles mars a potentially humorous biographical documentary about Gray Barker, an allegedly less -than-truthful pulp writer in the early 1950's the documentary filmmakers attribute to be the father of many urban legends; including flying saucers, The Mothman, men in black, and the Philadelphia Experiment. Even when it was understood that the interviewees were recounting Gray Barker's many novels and articles about paranormal events, I was sometimes confused as to who the statically shot colorful cast of characters were talking about. Maybe that was the point. On Netflix Instant Streaming.
