Boone.

0:00:590:01:00

< Yes, General?

0:01:000:01:03

I'm going into the next office.

0:01:030:01:05

< Yes, sir.

0:01:050:01:07

Damn it.

0:01:270:01:28

'My name is Bob Wilton. I'm a journalist.'

0:01:370:01:40

'Part of my job is finding where a story begins.'

0:01:400:01:43

'If you were looking at my story might think it began

0:01:430:01:45

'when I got a job at the Ann Arbor Daily Telegram.'

0:01:450:01:48

'Or you might think it began

0:01:480:01:49

'when I married my college sweetheart, Debora.'

0:01:490:01:51

'But you'd be wrong.'

0:01:510:01:53

'Because the real story of my life began a few years back

0:01:530:01:56

'when my editor sent me to interview a local guide he'd heard on

0:01:560:01:59

'a talk radio show.'

0:01:590:02:00

'The guy claimed to have some kind of psychic powers,

0:02:000:02:03

'that he could travel with just his mind anywhere he wanted.'

0:02:030:02:06

'He called it remote viewing.'

0:02:060:02:07

'The man's name was Gus Lacey.'

0:02:070:02:10

What have you seen lately?

0:02:100:02:11

Lately I've been watching the Loch Ness monster in Scotland.

0:02:110:02:16

Thanks, Mom.

0:02:160:02:18

Er, and it turns... I've got it.

0:02:180:02:20

Mom, I've got it. Thank you.

0:02:200:02:23

It turns out it's the ghost of a dinosaur.

0:02:230:02:27

OK, wow.

0:02:280:02:31

So when did this all start for you, Gus?

0:02:310:02:34

It started when I was a kid.

0:02:340:02:36

'Gus told me that back in the '80s he was part of a top-secret unit

0:02:360:02:39

that got their training in the Army

0:02:390:02:41

in a programme sanctioned by the highest levels of government.'

0:02:410:02:44

'When I asked him what the purpose of this unit was, he said...'

0:02:440:02:47

We were psychic spies, mainly. That was our initial tasking.

0:02:470:02:51

Once they realised what they were sitting on,

0:02:520:02:55

we were trained to kill animals.

0:02:550:02:57

-What, with your...

-With our minds, that is correct.

0:02:580:03:01

Just by staring at them.

0:03:010:03:03

What kind of animals?

0:03:040:03:06

One of our unit stopped the heart of a goat.

0:03:060:03:09

Wow.

0:03:090:03:11

The power they unleashed in us.

0:03:110:03:14

Last week I killed my hamster.

0:03:160:03:18

Want to see?

0:03:200:03:22

There. Look.

0:03:240:03:26

You ever see a hamster do that before?

0:03:260:03:28

I never owned a hamster, Gus, before.

0:03:280:03:30

Just look. Look. See the way it's glaring at its wheel.

0:03:300:03:33

Yeah, I guess our hamster-owning leaders would know

0:03:330:03:36

it's abhorrent behaviour and what...

0:03:360:03:38

What's...

0:03:380:03:40

-Oh, shit. Shit. He's down.

-Yeah, he's down.

0:03:400:03:43

At this pointed I'd been staring at him for about three hours.

0:03:430:03:47

Bizarre, right?

0:03:470:03:49

What is that? He didn't die. You said you killed it.

0:03:500:03:53

Yeah, well, Mom said no.

0:03:530:03:56

She said don't show the hamster dying, show the tape where

0:03:560:03:59

the hamster acts bizarre instead.

0:03:590:04:01

You should have seen the skipper at work.

0:04:010:04:03

-Who's the skipper?

-Lyn Cassady.

0:04:030:04:05

I mean, after Bill he was the most gifted psych I ever met.

0:04:050:04:08

He was like an occult force.

0:04:090:04:12

Think he runs a dance studio now.

0:04:130:04:16

'The little man inside me dismissed Lacey as a nut.'

0:04:180:04:22

'You know the little man.'

0:04:220:04:23

'He's the one who says keep your head down, stay in your little town.'

0:04:230:04:28

'Your little job.'

0:04:280:04:29

'You're a lucky guy, your wife loves you.'

0:04:290:04:31

'You have everything you want.'

0:04:310:04:34

'You're not looking for some great adventure.'

0:04:340:04:37

'But then, one day when you least expect it...

0:04:370:04:41

'..the great adventure finds you.'

0:04:430:04:45

'Ron's sudden death was the catalyst for everything.'

0:04:460:04:49

'Debora told me later that it had been like a wake-up call for her.'

0:04:490:04:52

'What people used to call a memento mori.'

0:04:520:04:55

'Ron's massive coronary had reminded her that life was just too short

0:04:550:04:59

to waste any chance of true happiness.'

0:04:590:05:01

'And that his death had helped to put everything in perspective.'

0:05:010:05:05

DEBORA GIGGLES >

0:05:100:05:11

'A week after the funeral, she left me for my editor.'

0:05:150:05:19

'It seemed like such a tragedy at the time.'

0:05:190:05:22

'We couldn't see beyond our little lives to the great events of history

0:05:220:05:25

'unfolding out there in the world.'

0:05:250:05:28

'I was like a child or a Hobbit safe in the Shire.'

0:05:280:05:32

'Or a blond farm boy on a distant desert planet,

0:05:320:05:35

'unaware that he was already taking the first steps on a path

0:05:350:05:38

'that would lead him relentlessly towards the heart of a conflict

0:05:380:05:41

'between the forces of good and evil.'

0:05:410:05:44

"Americans are a resolute people

0:05:440:05:46

"who've risen to every test of our time."

0:05:460:05:49

"Adversity has revealed the character of our country

0:05:490:05:52

"to the world."

0:05:520:05:53

'Had I known where that path would lead,

0:05:530:05:56

'had a soft wind from my future brought me the name of Bill Django,

0:05:560:06:00

I might never have gone.'

0:06:000:06:01

'But as it was, I did what so many men have done throughout history

0:06:010:06:05

'when a woman has broken their heart.'

0:06:050:06:08

'I went to war.'

-DEBORA:

-'So have you seen any combat?'

0:07:440:07:46

Yeah, no, it's, erm...

0:07:460:07:48

I won't lie to you, Debora, it's been pretty damn hairy.

0:07:480:07:51

'Yeah. We've been watching it on Fox.'

0:07:510:07:53

Yeah, but it's not...

0:07:530:07:55

I've seen things that you shouldn't... You know?

0:07:560:08:01

'I don't even know why you're there.'

0:08:010:08:03

I think it's important people get an accurate picture of what's...

0:08:030:08:07

-'MALE VOICE'

-"What?"

0:08:070:08:08

-'Are you ready to go?'

-..what's happening.

0:08:080:08:10

'Yeah.'

0:08:100:08:12

So, what? Is that Dave?

0:08:120:08:14

'Yeah. He says hi.'

0:08:140:08:17

Well, that's...

0:08:190:08:20

'Is he gonna get his stuff outta here?'

0:08:200:08:23

That's...

0:08:230:08:24

I gotta go.

0:08:270:08:29

We're moving out, riding up north to cover the fighting there.

0:08:290:08:32

'Wait, Bob...'

0:08:320:08:33

So what's a useful phrase?

0:08:370:08:38

MAN SPEAKS ARABIC

0:08:390:08:41

HE REPEATS SLOWLY

0:08:420:08:45

What does that mean?

0:08:450:08:46

"Don't shoot. I'm a reporter."

0:08:460:08:49

I'll keep that in mind.

0:08:500:08:52

HE REPEATS ARABIC PHRASE

0:08:540:08:56

'I'd been waiting for a month for permission to cross

0:08:580:09:00

'the border into Iraq.'

0:09:000:09:02

'All that time I'd seen the embedded war correspondents coming back,

0:09:020:09:05

'swapping stories. They all ignored me.'

0:09:050:09:08

'I had to get into Iraq somehow

0:09:080:09:10

'or I would never again be able to face myself, my wife,

0:09:100:09:13

'or that one-armed fuckhead, Dave.'

0:09:130:09:16

DeWitt Resources. Out of Arkansas.

0:09:170:09:20

That's right. We make trash cans.

0:09:200:09:23

You're here for the conference, right?

0:09:230:09:25

-Looking for a contract.

-I guess.

0:09:250:09:27

What's your pitch?

0:09:270:09:28

Well, we're real cheap.

0:09:300:09:31

-Bob Wilton.

-Skip.

0:09:340:09:37

-Do you mind if I...

-No.

0:09:370:09:40

-So, you're from Arkansas.

-No.

0:09:410:09:44

-Been here long?

-No.

0:09:450:09:47

CHATTER AND LAUGHTER >

0:09:500:09:51

'Be careful what you wish for.'

0:09:520:09:53

'I wanted to prove myself.'

0:09:530:09:55

'And for my sins fate taught me a lesson.'

0:09:560:10:00

Lyn Cassady.

0:10:040:10:06

Lyn Cassady.

0:10:060:10:08

After Bill he was the most gifted psych I ever met.

0:10:080:10:11

Do you know Gus Lacey?

0:10:160:10:18

Skip?

0:10:220:10:23

Hello?

0:10:310:10:32

Lyn.

0:10:330:10:35

I have your hat.

0:10:350:10:36

Skip?

0:10:440:10:45

LYN SHOUTS

0:10:480:10:49

You working for Hooper?

0:10:490:10:50

No, I work for the Ann Arbor Daily Telegram.

0:10:500:10:52

How do you about Lacey?

0:10:520:10:54

I interviewed him a few months ago for my paper.

0:10:540:10:57

Little prick.

0:11:010:11:02

Follow me.

0:11:030:11:05

Let me ask you something.

0:11:060:11:08

What colour were the chairs in the hotel bar?

0:11:080:11:11

Erm...

0:11:110:11:13

You were there for hours. What colour were the chairs?

0:11:150:11:19

-Green.

-Beige.

0:11:190:11:20

How many lights are in this room?

0:11:200:11:22

A super soldier wouldn't have to look. He would just know.

0:11:220:11:25

-Super solider?

-A Jedi warrior.

0:11:250:11:28

He'd know where all the lights were, how many power outlets there were.

0:11:280:11:32

People are walking around with their eyes closed.

0:11:320:11:35

At Level One we were trained to instantly absorb all details.

0:11:350:11:39

What's that, what's a Jedi warrior?

0:11:400:11:42

You're looking at one.

0:11:420:11:44

You're a Jedi warrior?

0:11:440:11:46

That's correct.

0:11:460:11:47

I don't... I don't know what that means.

0:11:470:11:51

I'm sergeant first class Lyn Cassady, special forces. Retired.

0:11:510:11:54

In the '80s I was trained at Fort Bragg under a secret initiative

0:11:540:11:57

codenamed Project Jedi.

0:11:570:12:00

The objective of the project was to create super soldiers.

0:12:000:12:04

Soldiers with superpowers.

0:12:040:12:05

We were the first generation of the New Earth Army.

0:12:050:12:09

-You've got superpowers?

-That's correct.

0:12:090:12:11

Wait a minute.

0:12:110:12:13

What you're saying is that you were a psychic spy like Lacey.

0:12:150:12:19

We prefer the term remote viewer.

0:12:190:12:21

How does that work?

0:12:230:12:24

Well, different Jedi had different techniques.

0:12:240:12:26

Mel Landow used to visualise packing all his troubles

0:12:260:12:29

into a little suitcase to clear his mind.

0:12:290:12:31

Steve Tuttle would recite Bible verse which was...

0:12:310:12:35

What about you?

0:12:350:12:37

I find drinking helps.

0:12:370:12:40

And if I'm listening to Classic Rock.

0:12:400:12:42

Oh, yeah? Like who?

0:12:420:12:43

I like Boston. Boston usually works.

0:12:430:12:46

What other, erm, powers would you practice?

0:12:460:12:48

Invisibility.

0:12:500:12:51

-Invisibility.

-Yeah. I was Level Three.

0:12:520:12:54

Like actual invisibility.

0:12:540:12:57

Yeah, that was the goal.

0:12:570:12:59

Eventually we adapted it to just finding a way of not being seen.

0:12:590:13:02

But once you understand the linkage between observation and reality,

0:13:020:13:09

then you begin to dance with invisibility.

0:13:090:13:12

Like camouflage.

0:13:120:13:14

No. It's not like camouflage.

0:13:140:13:16

We also practise phasing.

0:13:170:13:19

Crossing from particle to wave. From physical to energy.

0:13:190:13:22

Solid objects seem to pass right through you.

0:13:220:13:25

That starts with a breathing exercise.

0:13:250:13:27

HE EXHALES

0:13:270:13:29

And then you think black. That's a nothingness. Got it?

0:13:290:13:32

-It's...

-HE EXHALES

0:13:320:13:33

This is... I don't know what...

0:13:360:13:38

Can I be honest with you, Lyn? I don't know what to make of this.

0:13:390:13:43

I don't know what to say. This is amazing stuff.

0:13:430:13:46

I want to... Erm...

0:13:460:13:48

-Could I write a story about this?

-Not gonna happen.

0:13:490:13:52

I've been looking for a story and I was gonna write about

0:13:520:13:54

the rebuild contracts, but this is much better.

0:13:540:13:57

-Not gonna happen.

-We could meet tomorrow.

0:13:570:13:59

I'm shipping out tomorrow.

0:13:590:14:00

-You're going home?

-I'm going to Iraq.

0:14:000:14:02

-I've been thinking about partnering on a factory in al-Qaim.

-Oh...

0:14:020:14:06

I could come.

0:14:070:14:09

-What?

-I could come maybe.

0:14:090:14:11

I don't wanna be a story. I don't need the attention.

0:14:110:14:14

-We could change names.

-There's a war over there, Bob.

0:14:140:14:16

You understand that? War.

0:14:160:14:17

I don't wanna have to be looking out for you.

0:14:170:14:19

You wouldn't ha-... I look after myself.

0:14:190:14:22

I've been in some pretty hairy situations.

0:14:220:14:25

I'm a journalist, Lyn, you understand?

0:14:250:14:27

I'm a journalist. I go where the story is.

0:14:270:14:29

What is this?

0:14:390:14:41

I don't know. It's just a doodle.

0:14:410:14:44

What's the matter?

0:14:460:14:48

Nothing.

0:14:480:14:49

"The US Army doesn't really have any serious alternative

0:15:060:15:09

"but to be wonderful."

0:15:090:15:11

"This does not represent the official position of the United States Army

0:15:110:15:15

"at this time."

0:15:150:15:16

Bill Django.

0:15:170:15:19

Who's Bill Django?

0:15:200:15:21

The man who wrote that book.

0:15:220:15:24

'He said it all started when he fell out of a helicopter in Vietnam.'

0:15:240:15:28

SHOUTING

0:16:150:16:17

What are you waiting for? What the fuck?

0:16:180:16:20

Why isn't anyone firing?

0:16:200:16:22

Fire!

0:16:220:16:24

'Every single one of Bill's men fired high.'

0:16:270:16:30

'They instinctively hadn't wanted to shoot another person.'

0:16:300:16:33

'Later, Bill would come across a study which revealed only 15 to 20%

0:16:330:16:37

'of fresh soldiers shot to kill.'

0:16:370:16:39

'The rest aimed high, didn't fire at all

0:16:390:16:42

or pretended to be busy doing something else.'

0:16:420:16:45

I've got you, sir. Stay with me, all right?

0:16:510:16:54

Their gentleness is their strength.

0:17:100:17:14

'While recovering in the hospital,

0:17:190:17:21

'Bill wrote to the Vice Chief of Staff for the Army

0:17:210:17:24

'explaining that he wanted to go on a fact-finding mission to explore

0:17:240:17:27

'alternative combat tactics.'

0:17:270:17:29

'The Pentagon agreed to pay his salary and expenses.'

0:17:290:17:32

'What Bill hadn't told the Pentagon

0:17:320:17:34

'was that he was really looking for the answer to his vision.'

0:17:340:17:37

'How could his men's gentleness,

0:17:370:17:38

'their general lack of interest in killing people,

0:17:380:17:41

'be turned into a strength?'

0:17:410:17:43

'How could love and peace help win wars?'

0:17:430:17:46

'Bill knew where to go to find out.'

0:17:460:17:47

# "Itchycoo Park" - The Small Faces

0:17:470:17:50

'Bill disappeared into the New Age Movement for six years.'

0:18:260:18:30

'Like all shaman before him, he had traversed the wilderness.'

0:18:300:18:33

'Now he was returning to his people a changed man.'

0:18:330:18:37

'He brought with him his confidential report

0:18:370:18:39

'which he called the New Earth Army manual.'

0:18:390:18:42

"The New Earth Army is a banner under which the forces of good can gather."

0:18:460:18:49

"The courage and nobility of the warrior

0:18:490:18:51

"blended with the spirituality of the monk."

0:18:510:18:54

"The Jedi warrior will follow in

0:18:540:18:56

"the footsteps of the great imaginineers of the past."

0:18:560:18:58

"Jesus Christ, Lao Tse Tung, W-Walt Disney."

0:18:580:19:01

"The role of the New Earth Army is to resolve conflict worldwide."

0:19:040:19:08

"Jedis will parachute into war zones utilising sparkly eyes technique,

0:19:080:19:12

"carrying symbolic flowers and animals,

0:19:120:19:14

"playing indigenous music and words of peace."

0:19:140:19:16

What's sparkly eyes technique?

0:19:160:19:18

Are you ready?

0:19:200:19:21

-You got it?

-OK.

0:19:300:19:32

-You see it? You got it?

-I think I got it.

0:19:320:19:34

Yeah. I got it.

0:19:340:19:35

'As Lyn drove on, I wondered what the hell I was doing.'

0:19:370:19:40

'I wanted to go back. This wasn't me.'

0:19:400:19:42

'This was crazy and so was Lyn.'

0:19:420:19:45

'But by then it was too late.'

0:19:450:19:47

'We had already crossed the border.'

0:19:470:19:49

What, does that direct you powers?

0:19:540:19:57

-What?

-The cone. Does it direct your psychic powers or something?

0:19:570:20:00

No.

0:20:000:20:02

It cooks supper. That's solar.

0:20:040:20:07

Utilising the power of the universe.

0:20:080:20:11

No pollution, totally renewable.

0:20:110:20:13

That's New Earth Army technology.

0:20:130:20:15

Pretty mind-blowing, isn't it?

0:20:210:20:23

First time I saw that, I was like, "What the fuck?"

0:20:240:20:28

Yeah. But... But it...

0:20:280:20:30

But what?

0:20:300:20:32

It's just hard to believe the Pentagon paid for this.

0:20:320:20:36

There's nothing in here actually about fighting.

0:20:360:20:39

New Earth Army was tasked with preventing conflict.

0:20:390:20:42

We were a force of peace, not war.

0:20:420:20:44

Bill understood if you want to change the world

0:20:440:20:46

you've got to start by changing the armies.

0:20:460:20:49

He was the guy that started the research into non-lethals.

0:20:490:20:52

-Non-lethals?

-Check this out.

0:20:520:20:55

-The predator.

-The predator?

0:20:580:21:00

Lyn, that's just a plastic - (YELLS)

0:21:000:21:02

You're mine now.

0:21:020:21:04

The predator is 100% biodegradable.

0:21:040:21:06

It's friendly to the Earth and it can hurt you in a hundred ways.

0:21:060:21:09

Fuck!

0:21:070:21:09

It has warrior capacities and it looks a little bit funny.

0:21:090:21:13

Jesus! Stop it.

0:21:130:21:15

I bought it online.

0:21:150:21:16

Funny thing is you could see this laying around on the ground

0:21:160:21:19

and you would never know it has such lethality.

0:21:190:21:22

Eyeballs.

0:21:220:21:24

HE YELLS

0:21:240:21:28

God damn it!

0:21:280:21:29

LYN LAUGHS

0:21:290:21:31

I guess it's officially night now.

0:21:330:21:36

Piece of shit.

0:21:380:21:40

I've got Crohns, the steroids help.

0:21:590:22:03

Sometimes there's a need, Bob.

0:22:060:22:08

Sometimes people are calling out for something

0:22:100:22:12

they don't even know it themselves.

0:22:120:22:14

Then a man like Bill appears out of nowhere.

0:22:160:22:20

Because he heard the call.

0:22:210:22:23

We are a hollow army, gentlemen.

0:22:280:22:31

Vietnam has crushed our soul.

0:22:320:22:34

We have to dream a new America.

0:22:340:22:37

An America that no longer has an exploitative view

0:22:370:22:40

of natural resources, no longer promotes consumption at all cost.

0:22:400:22:44

But to achieve this dream

0:22:470:22:50

we must become the first superpower to develop superpowers.

0:22:500:22:54

We must create warrior monks.

0:22:540:22:56

Men and women who can fall in love with everyone,

0:22:570:23:01

sense plant auras, pass through walls,

0:23:010:23:04

stop saying mindless cliches and see into the future.

0:23:040:23:08

I want you to join me in this vision.

0:23:090:23:13

Be all you can be.

0:23:140:23:17

'Among Bill's audience that day was a brigadier general

0:23:170:23:20

'from the Defence Intelligence Agency, Dean Hopgood.'

0:23:200:23:23

'For some time the general had been

0:23:230:23:25

'concerned with Soviet research into psychic powers.'

0:23:250:23:28

'According to some stories,

0:23:280:23:30

'the Soviets had designed psychotronic generators.'

0:23:300:23:32

'Machines capable of bombarding the President with negative energy.'

0:23:320:23:36

'They were also conducting sadistic experiments

0:23:360:23:39

'to see whether animals had psychic powers.'

0:23:390:23:41

'Could they, for instance,

0:23:410:23:43

'telepathically detect that their babies were distressed?'

0:23:430:23:46

Sick bastards.

0:23:460:23:48

When did the Soviets begin this type of research?

0:23:480:23:50

Well, sir, it looks like they found out about our attempt

0:23:500:23:54

to telepathically communicate with one of our nuclear subs,

0:23:540:23:57

the Nautilus, while it was under the polar cap.

0:23:570:23:59

-What attempt?

-There was no attempt.

0:23:590:24:01

Seems the story was a French hoax.

0:24:010:24:04

But the Russians think the story about the story being a French hoax is just a story, sir.

0:24:040:24:09

They started doing psy research

0:24:090:24:10

because they thought we were doing research when we weren't.

0:24:100:24:14

Yes, sir. But now that they are doing psy research

0:24:140:24:16

we're gonna have to do psy research, sir.

0:24:160:24:19

We can't afford to have the Russians leading the field in the paranormal.

0:24:190:24:24

'Two weeks later the Army adopted the slogan "be all you can be".'

0:24:240:24:27

'They appointed Bill commander of the first New Earth Army battalion.'

0:24:270:24:31

Lyn?

0:24:460:24:47

Lyn?

0:24:500:24:52

Lyn! Lyn!

0:24:570:25:00

What?

0:25:010:25:02

Nothing. I...

0:25:080:25:10

What are you doing?

0:25:100:25:11

Salute to the sun.

0:25:120:25:13

Alright, we're Oscar Mike.

0:25:150:25:17

That's on the move, soldier.

0:25:180:25:20

Right.

0:25:200:25:21

What are you doing?

0:25:390:25:41

Cloud bursting. Keeps me in shape.

0:25:410:25:43

Really? Which one?

0:25:430:25:45

That one.

0:25:450:25:47

-This one?

-No, that one. The big one.

0:25:470:25:49

-Isn't that too far away?

-They're all far away.

0:25:520:25:54

And it's gone.

0:26:030:26:04

Jesus, you had the whole desert to drive in, Lyn.

0:26:170:26:20

I'm sorry about that, Bob.

0:26:200:26:22

Must have gotten a little bilocational there.

0:26:220:26:24

I wouldn't worry about it, though. Somebody will come along soon.

0:26:240:26:28

-Heads.

-Right.

0:26:330:26:35

-Heads.

-Right.

0:26:380:26:40

-What's your record of this?

-264. Tails.

0:26:410:26:46

Right. Well, that's pr-...

0:26:470:26:51

Thank you, Jesus. Sweet Jesus.

0:26:530:26:55

Please, please. Please.

0:26:550:26:58

Can you help us? Can you help?

0:26:580:27:00

Can you help? We drove into a rock.

0:27:000:27:02

I wondered if you could take us to a town or some place.

0:27:020:27:06

HE SPEAKS ARABIC

0:27:060:27:08

Can we get in?

0:27:080:27:10

Thank you. He says, "futter". We can get in.

0:27:100:27:13

Thank you. Thank you for... for picking us up.

0:27:180:27:22

No cars came by.

0:27:220:27:25

How far is...

0:27:250:27:26

Lyn?

0:27:320:27:33

Is this...

0:27:340:27:35

Yeah.

0:27:350:27:37

We're gonna die.

0:27:410:27:43

I'm gonna be killed by Al-Qaeda.

0:27:440:27:47

I don't think they're Al-Qaeda.

0:27:500:27:51

What the hell do you know?

0:27:510:27:54

You don't know.

0:27:540:27:55

You don't know, you don't know anything.

0:27:550:27:58

This is all your fault.

0:27:580:28:00

Bob, there's something I have to tell you.

0:28:040:28:06

When I said that I was retired from the unit, that was a lie.

0:28:060:28:09

I'm on a mission. DeWitt is just my cover.

0:28:090:28:12

I've been reactivated.

0:28:120:28:14

I couldn't tell you because it's a black op.

0:28:140:28:17

But I think that you have a role to play.

0:28:170:28:19

I think that's why you're here.

0:28:190:28:21

You're an idiot.

0:28:210:28:23

You know why I'm here?

0:28:230:28:25

I just wanted to get into Iraq

0:28:250:28:27

so I could prove to my wife that I wasn't a...

0:28:270:28:31

And now I'm gonna die.

0:28:330:28:34

Gonna die and she's right. I'm such a...

0:28:350:28:37

Fuck.

0:28:380:28:40

Bob, have you ever heard of optimum trajectory?

0:28:400:28:43

What?

0:28:430:28:45

Optimum trajectory.

0:28:460:28:48

Your life is like a river.

0:28:500:28:53

If you're aiming for a goal that isn't your destiny

0:28:530:28:55

you're gonna be swimming against the current.

0:28:550:28:57

Young Ghandi wants to be a stock car driver. It's not gonna happen.

0:28:570:29:01

Anne Frank wants to be a high-school teacher. Tough titty, Anne, It's not your destiny.

0:29:010:29:05

But you will go on to move the hearts and minds of millions.

0:29:050:29:08

Find out what your destiny is and the river will carry you.

0:29:080:29:13

Now, sometimes events in life give an individual clue

0:29:130:29:19

as to where their destiny lies.

0:29:190:29:21

Like those little doodles you just happened to draw.

0:29:210:29:24

It's the Ajna chakra, the third eye.

0:29:290:29:32

The symbol of the Jedi.

0:29:320:29:35

When I saw that you were drawing it, well...

0:29:350:29:38

The universe gives you clues like that, you don't even ignore it.

0:29:380:29:41

You were meant to be here with me, Bob.

0:29:430:29:46

It's the Jedi in you that senses it.

0:29:460:29:49

I don't think that these guys are FRLs or Mahdi Army.

0:29:500:29:52

I think we're talking standard criminals here.

0:29:520:29:55

Which means they're gonna try and sell us to another group.

0:29:550:29:58

-We can't let that happen.

-How are we gonna stop them?

0:29:580:30:00

-There's three of them with guns.

-We're Jedi, Bob.

0:30:000:30:03

We don't fight with guns, we fight with our mind.

0:30:030:30:05

What do you mean?

0:30:050:30:07

Let's say that we have no choice but to fight these guys.

0:30:070:30:11

We're gonna use visual aesthetics to instil psychically

0:30:110:30:15

in the enemy the disincentive to attack.

0:30:150:30:17

What do you mean?

0:30:200:30:21

OK, you pick one of them out, you lock eyes with him

0:30:210:30:24

and you go into this monotone.

0:30:240:30:26

You go (HUMS).

0:30:260:30:28

No, I'm not going to attack you.

0:30:280:30:32

Relax your body and your voice.

0:30:320:30:34

Then you just rip out one of his eyes

0:30:370:30:39

or you get a pen and stab him in the neck.

0:30:390:30:41

You create this fountain of blood.

0:30:410:30:43

I mean a real fountain. Get it squirting all over his buddies.

0:30:430:30:46

That is a psychic disincentive right there.

0:30:460:30:48

We haven't got a pen.

0:30:500:30:51

You're missing the point.

0:30:530:30:55

Come on.

0:30:550:30:56

Let me show you something.

0:30:580:30:59

-Choke me.

-I don't wanna, Lyn.

0:31:000:31:02

-Choke me, what am I gonna do?

-I don't know.

0:31:020:31:04

-There's too many sharp edges.

-It's OK. You can attack me.

0:31:040:31:07

What's with the quotation fingers?

0:31:070:31:09

It's like saying I'm only capable of ironic attacking.

0:31:090:31:12

Choke me.

0:31:120:31:13

Well, if I choose to choke you, what are you gonna do?

0:31:150:31:18

I'm gonna interrupt your thought pattern.

0:31:180:31:20

See, I barely moved.

0:31:340:31:35

Physics wise, not much going on here.

0:31:360:31:38

It's the psychic energy that's important. You OK?

0:31:380:31:41

-Sharp edges.

-Yeah.

0:31:410:31:42

-You felt fear, though, in the beginning.

-Yes.

0:31:430:31:46

Would you say that the level of fear was abnormal?

0:31:460:31:49

I don't know. I was pretty terrified anyway.

0:31:490:31:51

But the fear that I felt on the run up to the choking was unusual.

0:31:510:31:55

You know why?

0:31:550:31:56

It wasn't you, it was me.

0:31:560:31:58

I was inside your head fighting with the mind.

0:31:580:32:02

Now, what you must always...

0:32:020:32:04

OK, yalla. We'll go. Yalla!

0:32:040:32:06

I'm sorry I freaked out back there, Lyn.

0:32:160:32:19

You learned a lesson.

0:32:190:32:21

Whatever you fear most has no power over you.

0:32:210:32:24

It's the fear that has the power.

0:32:240:32:27

Bill?

0:32:270:32:28

Oprah.

0:32:280:32:29

You really don't work for DeWitts.

0:32:310:32:34

Just my cover.

0:32:340:32:36

Gus Lacey said you ran a dance studio.

0:32:360:32:38

-That was just a cover, too, right?

-No.

0:32:380:32:40

I do run a dance studio. I love dance.

0:32:400:32:43

And you're out here on a mission, right?

0:32:450:32:47

In time, Bob.

0:32:480:32:51

Did you mean what you said back there when you said I had some Jedi in me?

0:32:510:32:55

We learn to recognise our own kind.

0:32:560:32:59

Haven't you always felt like you were different?

0:32:590:33:01

-Yes. Yes, I have.

-That's the way it is for us.

0:33:010:33:03

We were the ones that didn't fit in when we were kids.

0:33:030:33:06

-Have you always had powers?

-Kind of.

0:33:060:33:10

Foxtrot 117 has launched. Tracking now.

0:33:100:33:12

ALARM WAILS

0:33:130:33:15

Did you crash those computers?

0:33:190:33:21

Yes, sir.

0:33:240:33:25

Far-fucking-out.

0:33:280:33:29

How'd you feel about a transfer, son?

0:33:310:33:34

I am Lieutenant Colonel Bill Django!

0:33:340:33:37

IF you pass this course, you will be a psychic weapon.

0:33:370:33:43

An angel of death.

0:33:430:33:45

0:33:560:33:58

I'm just kidding about this shit.

Lyn, sir.

You've got to free your feet before you can free your mind, Lyn.

0:34:270:34:31

Not really much of a dancer, sir.

0:35:100:35:13

OK, everyone. Remember, we officially do not exist as a unit.

0:35:130:35:18

Remember, no solid food this first week.

0:35:190:35:22

Primal scream, Belgian waffle, ginseng and amphetamines.

'Larry made it quite clear that he despised most of the other Jedis.'

0:37:290:37:33

Hey, man. How would you like it if someone did that to you?

0:37:330:37:36

'But Lyn? Lyn was different.'

0:38:120:38:14

A tin mug.

0:38:140:38:16

It's a man sitting in a chair.

'From that moment on, Lyn's reputation soared.'

Rank, medals.

0:39:510:39:53

These things mean little to the Jedi.

0:39:530:39:55

But growth in spirit, in wisdom, in psychic power,

0:39:550:40:00

these are things that earn our respect.

Native Americans believe that when one received the eagle feather

0:55:180:55:20

Bedouins have been navigating this desert for centuries without a nap.

0:55:200:55:25

You could even use a wristwatch in conjunction with the sun.

0:55:250:55:28

-Well?

-Well what?

0:55:280:55:29

-Well, use a wrist watch.

-I haven't got a wristwatch.

0:55:290:55:32

Oh, for the love of...

0:55:320:55:34

Here.

0:55:340:55:35

What?

0:55:370:55:38

-It's digital.

-So?

0:55:380:55:40

You need a watch with hands.

0:55:400:55:42

How am I supposed to know? You're the navigation expert.

0:55:420:55:45

You're the one that said you could find the way.

0:55:450:55:47

-I will if you just be quiet.

-You don't even have a watch.

0:55:470:55:50

I don't need a watch. I'm using Level Two.

0:55:500:55:52

-What is that?

-Level Two. Intuition.

0:55:520:55:54

We were trained to make correct decisions.

0:55:540:55:56

Somebody runs up to you and say there's a fork in the road.

0:55:560:55:59

Do you go left or right? You go... we go right.

0:55:590:56:01

-Just instant?

-Instant, just like that.

0:56:010:56:04

We've been sitting here for half-an-hour. How is that instant?

0:56:050:56:09

CAR STARTS

0:56:090:56:10

-Oh, it's this way?

-Yeah.

0:56:110:56:13

Oh, now you know.

0:56:130:56:14

-HE GRUNTS:

-Hang on.

0:56:450:56:47

What happened?

0:56:500:56:52

-IED.

-What?

0:56:520:56:54

-Improvised explosive device.

-Oh, Jesus.

0:56:540:56:57

-Jesus.

-You're OK.

0:56:570:56:59

-You're gonna be OK.

-I can't believe it.

0:56:590:57:01

Great fucking intuition, Lyn.

0:57:010:57:03

Put me down. I can walk.

0:57:030:57:05

Jesus.

0:57:060:57:08

I think I may be bleeding to death.

0:57:080:57:10

You're not bleeding to death, you're in shock.

0:57:100:57:13

It's the shock.

0:57:130:57:14

It's so hot. So hot.

0:57:140:57:17

Aren't you hot?

0:57:170:57:18

Bob, it's pretty important you keep your mouth closed.

0:57:180:57:22

You lose a lot of water through an open mouth.

0:57:220:57:24

If we'd only stayed with the car then we'd be alright now.

0:57:240:57:28

-Now we have no water.

-You're gonna be OK.

0:57:280:57:30

Will you stop saying that?

0:57:300:57:32

I've been blown up, I'm in the middle of the desert.

0:57:320:57:34

-I'm not gonna be OK.

-Bob, you're in shock.

0:57:340:57:37

If you panic, your heart's gonna stop.

0:57:370:57:40

Is that supposed to calm me down?

0:57:400:57:41

Wait a minute.

0:57:430:57:44

This is west. al-Qaim is the other way.

0:57:450:57:49

-We're going the wrong way.

-Al-Qaim isn't the mission.

0:57:490:57:52

-We're going near al-Qaim.

-Where?

0:57:520:57:54

I don't know.

0:57:560:57:57

What? Is that a joke?

0:57:570:57:59

It's a joke, right?

0:57:590:58:00

We've come 600 miles and you don't know where we're going.

0:58:000:58:03

If the exact whereabouts of the target was known,

0:58:050:58:08

it wouldn't take a Jedi to find it, would it?

0:58:080:58:11

Who gave you the mission, Lyn?

0:58:120:58:14

-Bill did.

-What?

0:58:140:58:16

Bill. He appeared in my trailer two months ago.

0:58:160:58:20

A psychic projection.

0:58:200:58:22

He called out my name.

0:58:220:58:23

Oh, Jesus. Lyn, there is no mission.

0:58:230:58:27

We're in the middle of the fucking desert cos you heard voices?

0:58:270:58:31

There's no-one here.

0:58:310:58:33

There's no-one fucking here!

0:58:330:58:35

'When the dust of Bill's discharge had settled,

0:58:360:58:39

'it revealed a surprising victor.'

0:58:390:58:41

What do you have for me, Sergeant?

0:58:420:58:44

This is a scientific report

0:58:440:58:46

I've done on possible offensive psy applications, sir.

0:58:460:58:50

I showed it to Lieutenant Colonel Django

0:58:500:58:52

-but he didn't seem interested.

-I bet he wasn't.

0:58:520:58:55

We have men who can do this?

0:58:590:59:01

I can think of one, sir.

0:59:010:59:02

We don't have the resources.

0:59:040:59:06

Well, sir, there is the goat lab.

0:59:080:59:12

'Just 80 yards from Major Holtz's office was an abandoned hospital.

0:59:140:59:18

'Most of these soldiers who lived and worked in Fort Bragg had no idea

0:59:180:59:21

'about the actual function of this building.

0:59:210:59:24

'Although it was abandoned, the hospital was not empty.

0:59:240:59:27

'The goats had been secretly flown in from Central America

0:59:270:59:30

'to avoid customs.'

0:59:300:59:32

'Special Forces weren't worried about regular soldiers hearing the goats

0:59:320:59:35

'because they'd been debleated.

0:59:350:59:37

'Goat lab was originally created as a secret laboratory

0:59:370:59:40

'to provide in-the-field surgical training

0:59:400:59:42

'for Special Forces soldiers.

0:59:420:59:44

'The goats would get shot in the leg with a bolt gun

0:59:440:59:47

'and then a trainee would have to dress the wound successfully.

0:59:470:59:50

'Goat Lab actually used to be called Dog Lab.

0:59:500:59:53

'But it turned out most soldiers

0:59:530:59:54

'didn't feel good shooting dogs in the leg.

0:59:540:59:57

'The Army, though, had long felt fine about doing stuff to goats.

0:59:571:00:01

'Even testing atomic weapons on them.'

1:00:011:00:03

It's gone, Bob.

1:00:051:00:07

I can't find him. I've lost my powers.

1:00:091:00:13

It's the curse.

1:00:141:00:15

What curse?

1:00:151:00:16

They took this beautiful thing that we've been building and

1:00:161:00:19

they destroyed the New Earth Army.

1:00:191:00:21

Who destroyed it?

1:00:211:00:23

I did.

1:00:251:00:26

'Hooper and Holtz wanted me to do an experiment.

1:00:281:00:31

'They wanted me to stop the heart of a goat.

1:00:311:00:33

'What had that goat ever done to me?'

1:00:331:00:35

It was completely against the way of the Jedi.

1:00:351:00:38

I was just gonna pretend to try so they could see it wouldn't work

1:00:381:00:41

and they would forget about it.

1:00:411:00:43

'Then, as I sat there, I felt this pulse inside me.

1:00:431:00:49

'I couldn't stop it.'

1:00:491:00:51

Maybe deep down inside

1:00:531:00:55

some dark part of me wanted to see if I could do it.

1:00:551:00:59

BREATHES HEAVILY

1:01:071:01:09

Holy shit.

1:01:211:01:23

That was it. I'd used my powers for evil.

1:01:251:01:28

It was as if I'd brought a curse on all of us.

1:01:281:01:31

It's like that poem where the guy kills a seagull

1:01:321:01:35

and they make him wear it around his neck.

1:01:351:01:38

Every night I would dream about that goat.

1:01:381:01:40

Its mouth opening and closing without making a sound.

1:01:401:01:44

The silence of the goats.

1:01:441:01:46

I finished my tour and I quit, I walked out. Never went back.

1:01:511:01:54

'But before he could leave, Larry arranged one last parting gift.'

1:01:561:02:00

What do you -

1:02:011:02:02

It was the Dim Mak.

1:02:091:02:10

-The Dim Mak?

-Dim Mak.

1:02:101:02:13

The quivering palm. The death touch.

1:02:131:02:15

It's forbidden in the New Earth Army.

1:02:151:02:18

What does the death touch do?

1:02:181:02:20

It kills you, Bob, with one touch.

1:02:201:02:23

Jesus.

1:02:241:02:25

There was a story that Wong Wufu, the great Chinese martial artist,

1:02:251:02:28

was in a fight with a guy who was beating him.

1:02:281:02:31

The guy gave him this light tap.

1:02:311:02:34

Wong looked at him, the guy just nodded.

1:02:351:02:38

That was it.

1:02:381:02:40

He'd given him the death touch. Wong died.

1:02:401:02:43

Then and there?

1:02:441:02:46

No. About 18 years later.

1:02:461:02:49

That's the thing about the Dim Mak.

1:02:501:02:52

You never know when it's gonna take effect.

1:02:521:02:54

'In a funny kind of way, I admired Lyn then.

1:02:591:03:02

'He believed in something so much he thought he could really die from it.

1:03:021:03:07

'I think that's what I'd been looking for all along.

1:03:071:03:10

'Something to believe in. Something to give meaning to my life.'

1:03:101:03:14

'That's why I'd fallen for Lyn's crazy stories.

1:03:151:03:17

'That's why I'd followed him out into the desert.'

Psy for psychological but the irony isn't wasted on me.

If this is a psyops base, what are you doing here?

1:07:091:07:12

I said it was primarily psyops.

There are individuals in the current administration

1:14:381:14:42

the sea and the space environments.

1:14:421:14:45

Help me to open my heart knowing that the universe will feed me.

1:14:451:14:50

I pray my boots will always kiss your face

1:14:501:14:54

and my footsteps match your heartbeat.

1:14:541:14:56

Carry my body through space and time.

1:14:561:14:59

You are my connection to the universe and all that comes after.

1:14:591:15:04

I am yours and you are mine.

1:15:041:15:07

I salute you.

1:15:071:15:08

I salute you.

1:15:131:15:14

Bill? Bill.

1:15:231:15:24

Bill.

1:15:241:15:25

Are you OK?

1:15:271:15:28

I just saw Timothy Leary.

1:15:311:15:32

Timothy Leary's dead.

1:15:321:15:35

I know.

1:15:351:15:36

Hey, I got an idea.

1:15:371:15:39

Good evening, gentlemen.

1:15:441:15:46

Wanna get some ice cream?

Don't eat the eggs.

1:16:331:16:35

-What?

-Don't eat the eggs.

1:16:371:16:40

What's going on?

1:17:071:17:08

We put LSD in the eggs.

1:17:091:17:11

Bill showed me where Larry had some bottles of LSD

1:17:131:17:16

and we put some in the powdered eggs last night.

1:17:161:17:19

And in the water.

1:17:191:17:20

What?

1:17:221:17:23

I put it in the main water tank, as well.

1:17:231:17:26

But we drank the water.

1:17:261:17:28

Yeah.

'I mean, I'm guessing. I haven't really looked at the thing.

1:17:571:18:00

'But it's gonna be fucking hot as balls out there again.

1:18:001:18:05

'Yeah. What else?'

1:18:051:18:07

'Big fucking shocker, right? It's gonna be hot again.'

1:18:091:18:12

Don't you think it would have been a good idea

1:18:161:18:18

if we hadn't drunk the fucking water?

1:18:181:18:20

That might have aroused suspicion.

1:18:201:18:22

But don't worry, over the years

1:18:221:18:24

I've developed a massive tolerance to all narcotics.

MAN: You're gonna hit the gate.

1:18:431:18:45

You're going to hit the gate.

1:18:451:18:47

It's cool. You missed it.

1:18:511:18:53

In the name of the New Earth Army and loving people everywhere,

1:18:581:19:03

I'm liberating you.

1:19:031:19:05

Come on. I'm liberating this base.

Put the gun down, Larry.

1:20:131:20:16

Wow. I'm really hungry.

1:20:281:20:31

Let's go. Come on.

1:20:351:20:37

Don't be afraid. They're just goats.

1:20:411:20:43

Don't worry about the soap.

1:20:501:20:51

Peace be with you.

1:20:571:20:58

Be free!

'Nobody exactly knows what happened.

1:22:341:22:36

'The official story is that their helicopter must have crashed.

'well, that's what happens when you fly a helicopter

1:22:421:22:45

'while you're tripping on acid.

1:22:451:22:47

'All I know is they've never been seen since.

'Everything.

1:23:011:23:02

'Lyn had handed the mission onto me and I would see it through.

'I was ready to go to prison as long as the truth came out.

1:23:231:23:26
