We are not alone.” Director Steven Spielberg’s thrilling, suspenseful and somehow very human speculation on the possibility of alien contact with mankind was one of the most surprising blockbusters of the 1970s. Richard Dreyfuss does a terrific job of anchoring the film as an unhappily married Everyman who’s suddenly possessed - along with hundreds of others – with visions of a strange tower rising up. And then the colored lights start appearing in the night sky … The passages of the massive alien ships appearing over the desert - told almost entirely without dialogue - are among the most radiantly beautiful images in all of Spielberg’s career. With Francois Truffaut, Teri Garr, Melinda Dillon and Bob Balaban.
