A film by Steven Spielberg.
Roy Neary sets out to investigate a power outage when his truck stalls and he is bathed in light from above. This strange vision and 5 musical notes are indented in his mind. He tries to find the meaning of the visions as well as the musical notes. Will he find them? and who put it in his mind.
A master piece for Spielberg. Close Encounters of the Third Kind.’ Planes lost in WWII suddenly appear in a Mexican desert; a long lost ship turns up in the middle of the Gobi Desert; and in Dharmsala, Northern India, hundreds of people are gathered together, singing–a short `tune’ that consists of a mere five notes, over and over. Dam what is going on? Then we go back to the power outage with Roy (Richard Dreyfuss) his pick up crosses the railroad tracks he notice the disturbance around him, and his truck is engulfed with a blinding light. In this great imaginative film directed film by Spielberg it takes you on a jpurney with Roy and the obsession that consumes him by finding what is that vision in his head as well as this 5 musical notes. The supporting cast includes Francois Truffaut (Lacombe), Bob Balaban (Laughlin) and Lance Henriksen (Robert) as well as the co Star Terri Garr as done a great job in this film. If you didn’t see that one yet you must.
