REVIEWS

“My favorite science-fiction movie! It’s philosophical, it’s religious… That is the great thing about Steven Spielberg’s film: We are in touch with another part of the universe and the two halves of the universe are connected. You come out of that movie changed. It is one of the greatest movie experiences I’ve ever had.”
– Ray Bradbury

“The best – the most elaborate – 1950’s science fiction movie ever made, a work that borrows its narrative shape and its concerns from those earlier films, but enhances them with what looks like the latest developments in movie and space technology.”
– Vincent Canby, The New York Times
