Steven Spielberg has a secret. It involves aliens, we know that. But all other details are parsed out in only the tiniest of increments as we, with Richard Dreyfuss as our primary guide, try to figure out the clues that lead to eventual human contact with aliens, defined as a Close Encounter of the Third Kind. By the end, we find out that the extra-terrestrials are there on a diplomatic mission and have come only to return both artifacts and people abducted from both the distant and recent past. Spielberg considered the reveal of the alien mothership at the end of the film so vital that he spent nearly 20 percent of the movie’s budget on visual effects, a staggering amount at the time.
