Editorial Reviews

In 1947, Rancher William ^SMac^T Brazel discovered what looked like a crashed alien spacecraft in Roswell, New Mexico. After reporting his find to Air Force Intelligence officer Jessie Marcel at the Roswell air base, the wreckage was reportedly flown to Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio. Some say it still exists there in Hangar 18^Eothers say it^Rs now at Area 51 in Nevada. Is this crash a figment of overactive imaginations? The U.S. Government isn^Rt talking about it. But, lots and lots of people are...

Did you know that a UFO sighting occurs somewhere every three minutes? If you have ever questioned whether real life is stranger than fiction, put your doubts behind you as the filmmakers who brought you the comedy hit Trekkies take on Roswell, New Mexico, the town famous for extra-terrestrial encounters and government cover ups.

Richard Kronfeld lives in Minnesota and has dreamed for years of traveling to Roswell, New Mexico to research alien abductions and, maybe, even contact an alien intelligence himself. All his friends have moved on and accomplished things in their lives and Kronfeld sees this trip as a way for him to take action for once in his life. The cameras follow Kronfeld as he makes his pilgrimage to the shrine called Roswell. Spend six days in a rented Coachman with two dogs, a film crew, UFO experts and an overdose of alien abductees. Documenting the fanatic-like following that has sprung up around reported extra-terrestrial encounters, Six Days In Roswell is a record of one man^Rs hilarious journey in search of the unknown and a journey in search of himself. This is the perfect DVD addition to any science-fiction fan^Rs video library. Fans of Fox^Rs The X-Files and the WB^Rs Roswell will certainly enjoy this sci-fi comedy hit!

Synapse^Rs DVD of Six Days In Roswell was one of the most critically acclaimed releases of 2000 and the winner of the DVD Association^Rs 2000 DVD Video Excellence Award! Listed on over six TOP TEN DVD Lists of 2000, this dual-layer DVD is loaded with added value and Special Features!

SIX DAYS IN ROSWELL
Produced and Edited by Roger Nygard Directed by Timothy B. Johnson Starring Richard Kronfeld and hundreds of other UFO Enthusiasts, including a rather large Joshua contingent.
Website: [...] Coming to Video and DVD in October 2000
Did you know that a UFO sighting occurs somewhere on the planet every three minutes? Hundreds of thousands of unexplained sightings have been reported all around the world, many of which were documented or photographed. 4 million Americans believe they have been abducted. 71% of Americans believe the government knows more than it is telling us about UFOs. Millions of people, including US President Jimmy Carter have claimed they've seen UFOs.
SIX DAYS IN ROSWELL is a documentary about the fanatic-like following that has sprung up around the many UFO sightings and the reported extra-terrestrial encounters. But specifically, the film is the story of one man's search for answers.
Richard Kronfeld lives in Minnesota and has dreamed for years of traveling to Roswell, New Mexico to research alien abductions, and maybe even contact an alien intelligence himself. All his friends have moved on and accomplished things in their lives, and Kronfeld sees this trip as a way for him to take action for once in his life. The cameras follow Kronfeld as he makes his pilgrimage to the shrine called Roswell.
Kronfeld and the film crew arrive in Roswell early the morning of July 1, 1997. Kronfeld's adventure begins with the simple task of finding a room. Unfortunately every hotel within a 50 mile radius is booked. Eventually Kronfeld locates a Roswell resident who agrees to rent out his motor home.
With lodging finally secured, Kronfeld sets out to find some answers.

I truly enjoyed this documentary. I had to stop the movie at times because I was laughing so hard! The makers of "Trekkies" bring you this hilarious film about mild mannered Richard Kronfeld and his quest to learn more about alien abduction by attending the 50th anniv celebration in Roswell, New Mexico.
In his spare time Kronfeld builds Star Trek props and fashions them from household items. The one scene of him dressed as Star Trek's "Captain Pike" and being pulled behind a lawn mower in this hometown's annual "Raspberry Festival" is worth renting this film alone.

I read the negative reviews of this movie and really had to post my own impressions. This is not a "pants-peeing funny movie", but it's a really good solid comedy. If a mockumentary about heavy metal can use faked interviews and characters, why can't a mockumentary about UFO fanatics? The thing about this movie is that it's humorous but it's not trying to be mean to its subjects. You're left with the feeling that maybe these people are a little silly, but that you should like and empathize with them. What little meanness there is, is handed out to Rich Kronfeld, who is completely in on the setup.

And I have to say, I really liked Kronfeld's character. I have known several men who were EXACTLY like the character he plays--well, known them in group settings, they were always uncomfortable being alone with a girl...and they responded to questions about dating with the same deer-in-the-headlights look as Kronfeld when the interviewer asks if he has a girlfriend. "You...you said you weren't going to ask me any questions about that kind of stuff..." My only criticism is that the guys I knew would never be as comfortable in front of a camera as Kronfeld's character is. I'd only seen him before as the angry/disturbed Dr. Sphincter and Wally on "Let's Bowl", so it was nice to read the info about this movie and find out that the real Rich Kronfeld is a lot like this character. Sure, he's a geek through and through, but by the end of the movie you've got a soft spot for him and his elementary school filmstrips and strange electrical junk. (OK, yeah, in college I lived in the geeky dorm, where all other activity ceased when first-run episodes of ST:TNG and MST came on. To quote Crow T. Robot, "Bite me.")

The minor characters are very well done for a low-budget movie.

The "viewer from Belmont, Ca" had better have ducked, cause this went right over his/her head. It's supposed to look faked. It's making fun of many documentaries and the people who play up to them on camera. It's subtle genious !

Roswell, New Mexico is a nice city with a Walmart and a terrific Mexican restaurant. Roswell also plays host to one of the cheesiest museum-cum-tourist attractions I've seen west of Irish Hills, MI. The better part of the exhibits has re-creations and imaginings of what alien entities or spaceships look like. I guess the price was right (free) but I had hoped for more "historical data" about the Roswell crash and documented sightings and encounters. Instead, the closest one gets to the "secrets of Area 51" are some pictures of "no trespassing" signs.

The most fun to be had at the museum wasn't from the stuff inside but from the people. After browsing around the gift shop, I checked out the museum's library. It was an odd, hushed atmosphere inside; quieter than any library I'd been in before. Stranger still was the handful of people sitting around the lone table. I felt that I had walked into the middle of something. After I jotted down some information about a video on Nikolai Tesla (See CdC #11), I made my way out. Just as I reached the doorway, I heard the woman at the table say to her compatriots in a hushed, stern voice, "It was not a bird!" They were quick to comfort her, "We know, honey, we know!" I had had a close encounter with someone who had had a close encounter!

When I heard about the film SIX DAYS IN ROSWELL, I was afraid that it was some horrid TV movie based on the WB Network show, "Roswell." Luckily, that's not the case. Timothy B. Johnson's documentary features Rich Kronfeld, a sappy Minnesotan seeking a close encounter of the third kind. In fact, he's hoping to be abducted by aliens. Perhaps among them, he'll feel more at home.

Kronfeld takes a trip down to the Roswell U.F.O.
