Steven Spielberg's 1977 science-fiction film, Close Encounters of the Third Kind never fails to stimulate the imagination with its stirring tale of ordinary people coming face-to-face with curious alien explorers. Thirty years ago, awestruck audiences were enthralled by the film's premise that we are not alone in the universe, coupled with its dazzling visual effects and Vilmos Zsigmond's Oscar-winning cinematography. Today, the film remains a touchstone of '70s cinema and a potent sci-fi daydream of watching the skies in search of an answer.
