Close Encounters of the Third Kind Reviews
This film should have died years ago. Poorly written and extremely overrated. Music dominated the film because there was no substance to fill the void.
A weird vibe here, everything is mysterious and you are left wondering for a long time. Nothing wrong with weird, but it does not match that well with Spielberg. It's like it's a bit much for him to bite over at the same time and the presentation is periodicly suffering from it. Not as cosy as many of his other films. Not scary, not especially exciting. There is charm here and it's extremely well crafted. Nice scenes and actors - not to mention the characters. Typical Spielberg features, really. It's cool to see director François Truffaut among the cast - I don't think he did many movies and I can't imagine why he was casted here. It works fine and it's a nice feature anyhow.
One of the poorer earlier efforts from the guy.
5.5 out of 10 five tone melodies.
