"Close Encounters," which was already a wonderful film, now transcends itself; it's one of the great moviegoing experiences. If you've seen it before, I'm afraid that now you'll have to see it again. - Roger Ebert

dir. John Carpenter, starring Jeff Bridges, Karen Allen, Charles Martin Smith, Richard Jaeckel, Robert Phalen
Sun: 8:35 only; Mon/Tue: 10:05, Watch The Trailer!

In Mr. Bridges' hands [his role] becomes the occasion for a sweetly affecting characterization -- a fine showcase for the actor's blend of grace, precision and seemingly offhanded charm. - Janet Maslin, New York Times

Mr. Hitchcock is probably the most artful sophist working for the films -- and anyone who doesn't think so should see Suspicion. - Bosley Crowther, New York Times
