It's always fun to discover old sci-fi like this. What viewers need to understand is that this was shot in 2 weeks on a $250,000 budget as part of an experimental PBS project. When you consider how much this film is able to convey with so little, one cannot help but admire it.
Aliens crafted in the preconscious of a passive everyman land on earth and end up uniting the human race, speaking acquiescent wisdoms, working in antique shops, pacifying the conscious mind of their own creator and finally stabilizing the anxiety-ridden reality he has continuously been remaking since an atomic war.
