Preparing (As Much as Humanly Possible) For Interstellar
Close Encounters of the Third Kind is one of Spielberg's finest, a combination of dizzying wonder and startling terror. Can a film feature both one of the most frightening sequences of all time and one of the most beautiful sequences of all time?
Yes it can.
Brilliant performances, wonderful casting, perfect cinematography, creepy and euphoric music, powerful pacing, and incredible direction; It all adds up to one of the finest sci-fi films ever made and one of the great motion pictures of the 1970s.
