"[A] skewed history of United States intervention in Latin America and a satire of conspiracy thinking." - J. Hoberman
Upon its release in 1991, TRIBULATION 99 became an instant counter-culture classic. Craig Baldwin’s “pseudo-pseudodocumentary” presents a factual chronicle of U.S. intervention in Latin America in the form of the ultimate far-right conspiracy theory, combining covert action, environmental catastrophe, space aliens, cattle mutilations, killer bees, religious prophecy, doomsday diatribes and just about every other crackpot theory broadcast through the dentures of the modern paranoiac.

The piecing together of a whole slew of films to make a trippy, paranoid fantasy is what Craig Baldwin excels at. And he leavens the proceedings with just enough fact to make you wonder...
Actually the "Great Tribulation" warned of in the Bible, by Jesus, Has not yet begun, Scheduled to begin in May of 2013. As most of the true followers of the true GOD creator of the heavens, earth, and sea, and all life there within know; God's timetables are different than that of human kind and marked by HIS Holy days, which HE gave to us. These events which marked the Holy days, were but a shadow of the things yet to come. If one wants to know, the things of the earth. One must study the things of the earth's creator.
it was interesting
Brilliant, insane, a perfect black mirror.
This is a must-see piece of underground American culture. Craig Baldwin's idiosyncratic vision is expressed via a paranoid, whispered narration over a very clever mash up of sci-fi and horror films with newsreels and footage of Reagan-era foreign policy blunders. This is DIY culture jamming at it's best.
