The Vast of Night is an alien encounter film like no other

I liked it. I thought stealing plot points from "Close Encounters" was an interesting choice.

Saw it last night and was delighted. It mixes low budget and a plot idea that has been beaten to death for decades yet turns it into something that feels completely novel. I would gladly re-watch it.

Another interesting, recent film about first contact is Cosmos, which is streaming o Amazon Prime. More of a slow burn drama, but there is science-fiction thrown in and it's an interesting look at what a first contact would be. Longer than The Vast of Night and a bit slow at times, but the payout is worth it.

Thanks for the tip on Cosmos. It's on the watch list.

I still haven't actually watched The Vast of Night! Maybe tonight.

"The Beyond" is another interesting movie of similar subject. The transfer of humans to humans 2.0 reminds me of a short story by Clifford Simack called "Desertion". It's an interesting subplot of the movie on how humans will have to adapt (change) to be able to travel in deep space.
