Close Encounters Of The Third Kind: The Collector's Edition

4

The best version available of Steven Spielberg's awe-inspiring they-come-in-peace opus, this edit contains all the good Special Edition inserts (including the UFO shadow and shower scene) but not, thankfully, the inside-the-mothership finale. Yet that big fifth star is denied by a mid-section that drags somewhat even if Richard Dreyfuss cracking up does bring a welcome darkness to the wondrous proceedings - and some obviously painted skylines.
