CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND is Steven Spielberg's extraordinary film about a man named Roy Neary (Richard Dreyfuss) who becomes obsessed with meeting extraterrestrials after encountering a UFO on an abandoned road one night. Against the wishes of his wife (Teri Garr) and children, Neary, along with another witness to the sighting (Melinda Dillon), travels to a mysterious mountain where the government has built a landing strip hoping to attract the aliens. Director Fran?ois Truffaut costars as Claude Lacombe, one of the organizers of the project. Spielberg hoped to follow up the huge success of JAWS with a low-budget film that would be an easy shoot, but, thanks in part to the complicated special effects, CLOSE ENCOUNTERS quickly snowballed into being an expensive endeavor but a commercial and artistic success. No one who has seen the film has ever looked at a plate of mashed potatotes the same way again.;

Wall Street Journal
"Steven Spielberg's shining, glowing masterpiece will never wear out its welcome."
The Guardian
5 stars out of 5 -- "John Williams?s eerie five-note alien music-language, ending questioningly on the dominant, is repeated over and over again until exactly the right cosmic tempo is found for communication. Another inspired touch."
4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he epitome of a truly great film....It is as good as you remember it and serves as a reminder of a time when blockbuster entertainments were still willing to show real ambition."
