CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND

It was probably the fifth or sixth time watching CLOSE ENCOUNTERS when I felt it's daunting, dark, deep impact. On a grand scale the story is of two world's trying to communicate, but it's main intimate story is of a man going insane and losing his family to an obsession he can't explain. When viewed one way the ending feels like an uplifting triumph, when seen another it's absolutely tragic.
