Movie synopsis

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.

Entertainment Weekly - Bruce Fretts (06/08/2001)

"...An undisputed classic....It's Richard Dreyfuss's finest hour..."
Total Film - Stephen Risness (08/01/2000)

Uncut - Peter Hogan (07/01/2001)

"Steven Spielberg's shining, glowing masterpiece will never wear out its welcome."

I have always been interested in UFO's and it had been many years since I saw this one so I wanted to see it again. Wouldn't you know it though, I bought it and the week I bought it, AMC had the movie playing!
