Dir. Steven Spielberg. USA, 1982, 115 mins. With Henry Thomas, Drew Barrymore, Dee Wallace. In Spielberg’s enduring masterpiece, one of the most wondrous and deeply touching of all science-fiction movies, young Elliott, a lonely child of divorce, befriends an outer-space creature who has been abandoned by his fellow aliens and yearns for his distant home planet. A symphony of feeling, featuring an audacious, overwhelming score by John Williams and cinematography by Allen Daviau that makes American suburbia look like a nocturnal dreamworld, E.T. is the rare blockbuster that is also a work of art.
