Episode 75: Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977)

closeencountersPart two of our look at paradigm-shifting films of 1977 comes from Steven Spielberg! Fresh off his success with Jaws, Spielberg took on a completely different topic, and delivered a technological and storytelling masterpiece, with the help of music from acclaimed master composer John Williams! Written and directed by Spielberg, and starring Richard Dreyfuss, the amazing director Francios Truffaut in a rare American acting role, Teri Garr, Melinda Dillon, and Bob Balaban, this film details the first real contact between the earth and a species from outer space. Parallel stories lead to a fusion ending full of strength, grit, determination, music, science, and above all, hope! Throw in love, seeming-insanity, dedication, and an ability to not blink in the face of seemingly impossible things, and you have a story that'll just make you feel good about our chances as a species! And Jeff, Buddy, and Chad reveal how a combination of talents from Lucas and Spielberg informed their choice of the next two films on their list!
