Apart from Capel Green, probably the most anticipated UFO documentary of our current time is Bob Lazar- Area 51 and Flying Saucers, directed by Jeremy Corbell and produced by George Knapp and Jim Martin, see: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9107368/. The launch of the film was very dramatic. It premiered on
the 3rd of December 2018 at the famous Ace Hotel UA
Theatre in Los Angeles ,
built by Charlie Chaplin. My friend and Mind Set Podcast host Gareth Davies
went to watch it; see here for his report (coming soon). The film was released
onto ITunes, Vimeo and numerous other platforms the moment the premier had
finished. Unfortunately that means the middle of the night for me, but I
watched it as soon as I got home from work today. Documentaries have become
more artistic and elaborate over the history of cinema and this one certainly
worked hard on being visually stunning, with good graphics and camerawork.
There was a lot of suspense too. The story didn't detail the background of
Robert S Lazar and it was assumed that the viewers were familiar with this, one
of the most famous cases in conspiratorial UFOlogy. In the background links I
provide my own assessment. The film includes a recording the first ever interview
with Lazar in May of 1989 on local television in USA ;
his face blacked out to protect his identity. After telling his initial tale,
Lazar went quiet for many years, only resurfacing briefly in 2014 for the twenty-fifth
anniversary of his revelations, see: https://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.com/2014/05/bob-lazar-25-years-on.html.
He is a very shy and secluded man which makes Corbell's documentary an
exclusive. The narrative focuses more on Lazar's personal life than the
technical side of his publications; the latter has already been meticulously
related and can be found everywhere you care to look. It shows Bob at home and
at work in the laboratory of his scientific company. Bob loves science and
engineering. In almost every scene he is wearing a science themed T-shirt.
Every since he was a child he has been building machinery such as a
jet-propelled bicycle. At the time he went to work at Area 51 he had already
put together a particle accelerator in his bedroom. To use American slang, he
was the ultimate "geek". There are candid interviews with Bob's
mother, his wife of eighteen years, Joy; and one of his employees. It seems, as
they say in the film, the better people know Bob the more likely they are to
believe him. Las Vegas
There are many other reasons to believe Bob Lazar too. He talked about several items of technology that were originally secret but have since been declassified, such as an electronic security lock that scans a person's hand. He has also passed four separate polygraph tests. He eagerly wanted to do another for Corbell, but in the end the director decided against it; however he showed no reluctance. There's a parallel here with the Larry Warren situation. Bob Lazar has been controversial within the UFO community and many individuals within it have denounced him as a fantasist. The most notable of these detractors is Stanton T Friedman, somebody everybody in the community respects. Friedman's sceptical attitude comes from research he did into Lazar's educational record. However Bob Lazar insists that he studied for qualifications and those records were deleted. Seeing that it is now proven that he did work at the Los Alamos National Laboratory that makes sense. It is not an institution that recruits school-leavers. He must have gone to university somewhere. Corbell also found somebody who knew Lazar in his youth who used to give him lifts to his classes at the California Institute of Technology, a very high-level training institution. Richard D Hall, who is an electrical engineer, has stated publicly that Bob Lazar talks like somebody who has been scientifically trained, see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DmYiwsz6T2k. In fact Richard has coined Bob Lazar's name as an adjective for anything he considers bizarre and out-of-this-world. It also turns out that the US Department of Energy really does have a facility with the name "S4", however they won't say what it is. The most interesting vindication comes from Lazar's discussion of "Element 115", what he called "Ununumpentium". Many years later in 2003 a new element was discovered at a laboratory in
which was listed
on the periodic table as number 115. It was named "Moscovium (Mc)"
capital city. However the scientists that discovered it describe it as having
very different properties to those related by Lazar. It is highly radioactive
and unstable. The longest half-life they can get from it in 0.8 seconds. Lazar
describes 115 as metallic and used as a source for gravity waves by the
extraterrestrial builders of the "sport model" flying saucer.
However, there is already work being done to stabilize Moscovium; and if we can
do that ourselves, why shouldn't the aliens have cracked it? Interestingly
Lazar claims he was consulted by these Russian scientists for advice! After the
initial threats to his life and that of his family, government attention
towards Bob Lazar continued at a lower key, but still persistent level. An
incident happens even during the production of the film. I really enjoyed Bob Lazar- Area 51 and Flying Saucers.
It leaves no doubt at all that Bob Lazar's story is very credible indeed. As
Jeremy Corbell says, the detractor faction has had the spotlight for too long;
this film is where Bob Lazar and his supporters take the microphone off them. Russia
