Close Encounters of the Third Kind September 18, 2006

Posted by Shujath in English, Movies, Reviews.

Before anyone watches this movie, one has to know what a “Close Encounter of the Third Kind” actually means….otherwise you might be a bit disappointed with the end of this otherwise brilliant movie. Put simply, this could mean an “intelligent communication” with an alien and/or and alien abduction (a theme which resonates hard in UFO stories).

Now coming back to a plot this is about two people who’ve witnessed alien spacecraft and have experienced some sort of contact with them which causes them to draw close to the spaceship for a “close encounter”. The whole movie is about incidents which act as communication to them by aliens and how they finally reach their destination. This is one of Spielberg’s earliest movies but I caught up with this only sometime back. What really amazed me is his ability to keep the audience gripped throughout even with such a wafer thin plot almost 30 years back! that just shows his brilliance as a filmmaker. The performances are good and so are the special effects – considering that it was made such a long time back. This is a movie which can be truly called a “sci-fi thriller” and you shouldn’t miss this if you like such themes.
