Vintage Spielberg Comes Back

Close Encounters 3Close Encounters of the Third Kind lands back in theaters today to celebrate it’s 40th anniversary, and it’s still the best movie ever made about abandoning your duties as a spouse and parent so you can blast off on a space adventure of unspecified purposes. I’ve written an appreciation of the film and its place in Spielberg’s corpus for the MUBI Notebook. Enjoy!
