Roy Neary sets out to investigate a power outage when his truck stalls and he is bathed in light from above. After this, strange visions and five musical notes keep running through his mind. Will he find the meaning of the visions, and who - or what - placed them in his mind? Written by

Could we have the lights in the arena down 60 percent, please... 60 percent.

I don't think we could have asked for a more beautiful evening, do you? Okay, watch the skies please... We now show uncorrelated targets approaching from the north-northwest.

The Romans certainly knew what they were saying when they coined the phrase: " de gustibus non est desputandum ". Most of the initial reviews of this aged film are favorable. Several of the later reviews express my opinion - a movie not worth watching. It is a mystery to me that such an outdated product continues to maintain a strong following. But again, " concerning tastes, there is no dispute ". I viewed this slow, boring film from my exercise bike. Pedaling was more exciting than what I was watching on the TV screen. During the first several minutes of the movie, the dialogue was difficult to hear and thus, to understand. The unnecessary noir aspect of many of the scenes- actually, a lack of illumination of the ambiance - made it difficult to see the actors in action. Again, if you like films of this theme, I suggest that you spend your viewing time with something more up to date
especially in effects.
