Steven Spielberg | 1971 | USA

I remember watching this as a teenager on the cathodic TV upstairs and being captivated by it. It was a time I had taken a pause on my teen-targeted blockbusters diet to dig a bit into "gems" from well-known directors, and this one certainly occupies a special place in my movie education.

Watching it again reveals to be dragging at times because much of the tension is especially relevant for a first viewing, but it's still a very solid flick.
