There's no denying that the climax is an absolute stunner, literate in plotting, dazzling in tone. At the very least the denoument is light years ahead of the climactic nonsense of Stanley Kubrick's 2001-A Space Odyssey. Yet, in terms of real empathy with enduring human nature as it is (warts and all), CIose Encounters lacks the warmth and humanity of George Lucas's Star Wars.
