Close Encounters of the Third Kind
Science Fiction • PG • 1977 • 2 hr 15 min
The entire film is imbued with a sense of wonder. Conveys a sense for a hopeful future. I left the theater in 1977 in awe and peace.
Vintage Spielberg…crafts a great story without the need for heavy dialogue
A great looking, evocative film, but the fanatic nature of Dreyfus’s character made it hard to completely engage.
Engaging with a lot of tension, mystery and creativity. Beautifully done.
The first 60 minutes are amazing but after that the movie falls off a bit. Anyways, it's still a very good sci-fi movie.
I've lost count how many times I have seen this movie. When it first came out the special effects were outstanding.
An interesting alien movie, but an even more interesting human drama especially considering Spielbergs familial struggles
I think this is one of Spielbergs lesser known gems. It’s a GREAT movie. Highly recommend to anyone. It’s got great special effects.
A classic Spielberg sci-fi film. It has good effects that still hold up today. Wonderful story of how humans first make contact with aliens.
Sci-fi with unique message. Something universal resides in the galaxies, compels us to create & communicate. A celebration of a benign power
