All Critics (14) | Top Critics (5)

Grand celestial theatre, in which the greatest storyteller in modern movies invites us to set aside any scepticism, look up, and believe.

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.

August 31, 2017 | Full Review…

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.

Top Critic

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.

August 30, 2017 | Full Review…

There isn't a wasted moment in this nearly two-and-half-hour cut of Close Encounters of the Third Kind, a film that has somehow matured along with me over the decades.
