I love this portrayal of Nikola Tesla – as so from somewhere else, in his perceptions and strange ways – not caring about money, telling the truth even when it’s rude, sorta like Mork only Tesla’s truths weren’t being played for comedy, and they offended powerful men’s egos and threatened the capitalist control of energy, so that was the end of Tesla.
(All the ways Tesla is weird, I totally feel for.)
Made in 1980 in Croatia with suspense soundtrack – c to a great movie experience!
With Orson Welles as J.P Morgan.
I post this as more than just a fun night, though. I think this movie is about Tesla as, genuinely, someone from somewhere else.

Tesla was a fascinating person in history. There is a book you might like as well, “Tesla: Man Out of Time”, by Margaret Cheney.

I think I used to own it, but hadn’t read it, then it disappeared! I’ll have to borrow it from the library. ;}
