Close Encounters of the Third Kind

Close Encounters of the Third Kind ★★★★★

This is the movie.

This is the movie that made me fall in love with movies. This is the movie that first made me notice all of the aspects of filmmaking. This is the movie that introduced me to visual storytelling. This is the movie that showed me Hollywood blockbusters could be ambiguous and intelligent. This is the movie that made me realize you don't need to be dark in order to be deep. This is the movie that makes me scream, cry, scream again, stare at the screen in awe and wonder, then cry again every time I watch it. This is the movie where after watching it for the first time, my only thought was "I want to make movies". This is the movie I can barely review without tearing up because it means just that goddamn much to me.

And yes. THIS is my favorite movie ever made.
