Close Encounters of the Third Kind

The Incomparable 575: You're Going to Your Sister's? I'm Going to Space!

Prepare your mashed-potato sculpture and zip up your red jumpsuit, because we’re about to discuss the 1977 film classic “Close Encounters of the Third Kind.” We discuss why this film is Steven Spielberg’s tapas, French-American UFO projects, “American Graffiti” with flying saucers, and much more. Plus Dan reveals a most unusual location to watch this film for the first time. It’s shaping up to be a real Summer of Spielberg.

Jason Snell with Cicero Holmes, Julia Skott, Annette Wierstra and Dan Moren
