Kanske en av Spielbergs största stunder. Humanism, äventyr och science fiction blandas till perfektion i denna gripande storfilm om en utomjording som tas hand om av en mänsklig familj.
It remains a classic – undamaged by cosmetic changes, and with power enough to overcome the impact of a hundred crappy telephone commercials.
The whole movie is based on what moviemakers call "point of view." Almost every single important shot is seen either as E.T. would see it, or as Elliott would see it.
…the film bears witness to the undeniable powers of one of cinema'smost skillful craftsmen.
...the story remains true to form--and fits surprisingly well in this savvy 21st century.
