perfect companion piece
31 July 2018 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

It's the iconic summer blockbuster, arguably the first ever. It has the cooperation of Richard Dreyfuss, Steven Spielberg, and almost everyone in between. I wasn't around during its initial run and I sometimes forget that Spielberg was a nobody who became a wunderkind overnight. The production was epic. The result was ground-breaking and it basically wrote a blank cheque for his next film, Close Encounters of Third Kind. It changed cinema period. This has most of the big stories and some of the interesting smaller stories. I know most of the stories but I'm not an expert so I don't know if this missed anything. It is interesting to see the first girl after all these years and Dreyfuss panning the movie before it was released. This is a perfect companion piece to the classic film.
