We can always use a shot of hope, a jolt of sweetness, and a chance to see a masterpiece of a certain age on a screen it deserves.

It's hard to overstate how good Spielberg's movie is (this is the 135-minute Director's Cut) and how contemporary it feels even today.

What I love about "Close Encounters" has nothing to do with graceful plotting or complex depictions of a marriage at a breaking point. It has everything to do with visual scale.

Rarely has Spielberg so marvelously united his gifts for horror and wonder.

The woman goes on an incredible adventure for one reason: in order to find her child. The man leaves his children for one reason: in order to go on an incredible adventure.

Some movies are just meant to be seen on the big screen. 40 years later, the legendary filmmaker's magnificent, epic adventure remains one of those movies.
