Roswell: The U.F.O. Cover-up

Genre: Mystery and Thriller; Lead Performer: Kyle MacLachlan; Performers: Martin Sheen, Dwight Yoakam; Director: Jeremy Kagan; Author: Arthur Kopit; Release Date Wide: 07/31/1994; Status: In Season; MPAA Rating: PG-13; Distributor: Showtime Networks Inc.

The time: 1947. The place: Roswell, N.M. Apparent UFO wreckage has been found in the desert — and the Feds have engineered a cover-up. The truth-seeking hero is an Air Force major (Kyle MacLachlan) who investigates the crash site, finds things he can’t explain, and spends the next 30 years trying to prove he had a close encounter. Blending headlines and hearsay with docu-style sci-fi, the filmmakers of Roswell: The U.F.O. Cover-up conjure a gripping detective story that’s only slightly too fantastic to be true. Or is it? B+
