366 Days at the Drive-In: Day 32

The Date: November 1

The Movie: E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial (1982)

What Is It?: Steven Spielberg’s boy-and-his-alien love story is often described as “heart warming,” but “poetic” may be even more apt even though the film practically has an outright disdain for spoken communication. A beautiful piece of purely visual filmmaking, though it would not be the same without John Williams's moving score and the Altmanesque overlapping dialogue.

Why Today?: November 1st is the day E.T. goes home.
