    My favourite film is Close Encounters and I think that Contact follows a number of its themes and makes an interesting companion piece.
    Thanks for the review, as someone who doesn’t get to the cinema very often I love retrospective reviews of films.

    Watched this movie kind of recently and found myself surprised at how well it held up. Absolutely a more cerebral kind of sci fi flick, but stuff like Arrival proves there is still an audience for it. Hopefully the new Bladerunner will fall in that category.

      I read an article on Rotten Tomatoes that said that Blade Runner 2049 is getting incredibly positive initial buzz from critics so we’ll see!

  3. I found “Contact” powerful on multiple levels. I remember that it wasn’t what I expected.

    I love this movie and I absolutely agree. That central issue of faith versus reason and whether the two are compatible is just irresistible. There are so few movies, and fiction books, that dare touch upon that subject.
