Justly celebrated for its warmth and sincerity, Close Encounters shames most contemporary blockbusters for their lack of heart and imagination. The film envisions human contact with extraterrestrial life as a celebratory event; the characters’ efforts to understand the strange life-forms—through scientific inquiry, culture, and curiosity—represent the best of humankind.

Close Encounters is [a] more interesting anniversary [than the original Star Wars], precisely because it is difficult to imagine a blockbuster quite like it appearing in multiplexes today. It is an extravaganza whose modus operandi is primarily—and close to entirely—one of revelation. Close Encounters is essentially an extrapolated daydream, or a vivid, deluxe play-by-play of the genre’s most elemental fantasy: contact with alien life.

Kubrick feared that people would laugh at the cliché of [aliens with] spindly figures with oversize heads. I confess to siding with Kubrick on this one. I find the aliens creepy, and the finale wildly overblown. . . . Still, most spectators are as spellbound as Spielberg himself is, thanks to the filmmaker’s emotional investment in the extraterrestrials with a sincerity Kubrick never could have managed.
