Radar Blips - Contact

The Year: 1997

The Players: A Robert Zemeckis (Back to the Future) film staring Jodie Foster, Mathew McConaughey, and Bill Clinton.

The Take: $101 Million

Who Gets Contacted?: The Earth folk, through a cleverly layered alien message sent in prime number pulses including schematics for a device that does something.

Why you should see it: This film should make you think. It poses questions about God, man's progress, faith, and in a non pretentious way. Even with a degree in electrical engineering, I found the description of the message to be quite complicated and interesting. Its nice when a movie is not dumbed down.

I thought this was a good movie once I was able to give it the time it deserved. Not really a light movie, but definitely worth a watch.
