Item Features
Released in 1977, Close Encounters of the Third Kind was that year’s cerebral alternative to Star Wars
It’s arguably the archetypal Spielberg film, featuring a fantasy-meets-reality storyline (to be developed further in E.T.), a misunderstood Everyman character (Richard Dreyfuss), apparently hostile government agents (long before The X-Files), a sense of childlike awe in the face of the otherworldly, and a sweeping feel for epic film-making learned from the classic school of David Lean
Contributing to the film’s overall success are the Oscar-winning cinematography from Vilmos Zsigmond, Douglas Trumbull’s lavish effects and an extraordinary score from John Williams that develops from eerie atonality à la Ligeti to the gorgeous sentiment of “When You Wish Upon a Star” over the end credits

Not content with the final result, Spielberg tinkered with the editing and inserted some new scenes to make a “Special Edition” in 1980 which ran three minutes shorter than the original, then made further revisions to create a slightly longer “Collector’s Edition” in 1998
This later version deletes the mothership interior scenes that were inserted in the “Special Edition” and restores the original ending
