REVIEWS:






SISKEL & EBERT:

"Steven Spielberg's giant, spectacular 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind'...is the best—the most elaborate—1950's science fiction movie ever made. .... Though 'Close Encounters' is strictly a product of the seventies in its dress and manners, its heart is in the fifties. .... The final thirty to forty minutes of the film...are breathtaking: the close encounter of the third kind in which the earthlings and the alien creatures come together on a secret landing field in Wyoming. This sequence, as beautiful as anything I've seen since '2001', has been deliberately designed to suggest a religious experience of the first kind. Whether or not you believe it, this climax involves the imagination in surprising, moving ways. This is a day in which the earth might have stood still."

-- Excerpt from The New York Times; November 17, 1977
