You may think of movie aliens as monsters out to conquer the planet - but Steven Spielberg's Close Encounters of the Third Kind might give you different ideas. The story follows an average family man who becomes convinced he's seen a UFO near his mid-American home. His family don't believe him - in fact, they think he's losing his mind. Eventually, his obsession takes over his life, and he sets off towards a strange rock formation hundreds of miles away that may hold the answers to his questions. Few people who see what that journey leads to will ever forget it...
