About the Movie
This program recounts the life of scientist, inventor, and visionary Nikola Tesla, often remembered as more of an eccentric cult figure than an electrical engineering genius. Many of his achievements are still attributed to contemporaries Thomas Edison and Guglielmo Marconi. Tesla's surprising inventions are revealed in his autobiographical and scientific writings, supplemented by rare photographs and re-creations.
Compelling and surprising in every respect
The story of a true genius who changed the world—for the better—and told with drama and the respect Tesla deserves!
History can no longer ignore the brilliance of Tesla. He is the Steve Jobs of electricity. A man with a vision and the will to make it happen. Great documentary.
Tesla, a master interpreter of physics
Very informative documentary, which lets you know how his work is an essential part of today's modern technological world. Tesla seemed to be a creative genius and somewhat eccentric. Unfortunately, his lack of practical interest in the "business-end" of his company cost him dearly. Also, some "big players" took advantage of him--including stealing his designs, inventions, and taking credit for his work. This movie is highly recommended; and, serves as a good teaching lesson regarding why one shouldn't be too trusting of "smiling faces."
