Close Encounters of the Third Kind - Special Edition


USA 1977, 137 minutes
Dir. Steven Spielberg
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Science Fiction / Invaders


Aroview: Richard Dreyfuss embodies a working class lineman who is chosen by a higher power for some great purpose. With a head full of ambiguous images and sounds, he drifts away from his mundane life to partake in a pilgrimage towards the lights. Meanwhile, government agents follow a similar trail of clues.

The "Twilight Zone" paranoia is eventually lost in a wash of sentiment, optimism and awe that is undeniably Spielberg.
