we're introduced to dreyfuss extolling the virtues of PETER PAN to his agnostic family. soon, that family is long forgotten as he leaps into (or invents) an adventure that could only be the product of the silver screen (no coincidence that the triggers for this obsession are audiovisual). it plays as subversively in the jaded, ironic '10s as i imagine it did in the cynical, paranoid '70s, earnestly locating the face of god in the process of creating and consuming art.

Certainly has some very memorable images and novel ideas, none of which makes a lot of sense. I'm getting the vibe that Spielberg really wanted to make something deep and philosophical in the vein of 2001 but with really, really annoying kids instead of homicidal AIs.

My opinion, richard dreyfuss gave much better performance than he was in Jaws. And also this is much better film. I'm fan of Arrival, and I think its a good film for the same reason as Close Encounters; they both are about alien and both are so real and logic

Spielberg's original take on the Alien topic is a finely crafted and truly though provoking work. With amazing special effects and a story worth telling to make it all work. Richard Dreyfuss also brings humor and demonstrates the pains of obsession in his terrific lead performance.

Of Spielberg's earlier works, this is probably the most difficult to watch today. It just doesn't hold up well to repeat viewings. I still enjoy Jaws and E.T. because they get the human elements right. It's the journey of their discovery that makes them special. Not so much here. The protagonist, who is a complete jerk-off, is not someone you'd root for. Also, I do wish they'd have gone with a more menacing spaceship; the colorful goofy-looking saucers screamed kid's movie.
