Who or what is that silver being? Is he/she/it good or bad?
It's a martian from the Piotr Szulkin film, War of the Worlds: Next Century. I think the Martians are supposedly the good guys, at least initially, it's the government and security forces who aren't.
Yes, Szulkin`s War of the Worlds, a satire at a totalitarian country where the main tool to control the society is TV. A depressing film, but inspiring, too. Although made in communist times, it is still valid today if we look at how current rightist rulers are using state TV and radio - pure lies and black propaganda all the time.
No, Martians weren`t good coz they needed blood. And obtained it in brutal ways.
The impression I got was that it was the security services giving the Martians blood, but I have only read about this film and not seen it. I didn't realise that blood is what the Martians actually wanted. That part wasn't made that clear, at least in English language explanations. Thanks for putting me right.
