The Abyss

Movie Review: "The Abyss(1989)

This startling and beautiful movie is like "Close Encounters of the Third Kind." It is a deeply spiritual and hyperaquarian vision of humanity's first contact with extraterrestrial life. It is an extremely positive account, interwoven with a Love-story. It is deeply stirring and uplifting, and triggers some rather awesome tears despite the fact that this film is rather old. The aliens are portrayed in beautiful colors and semi-angelic contexts combined with the traditional and archetypal
"grays." In the end, in a hypnotic and mesmerizing climax, they save both themselves and humanity from a terribly destructive nuclear event. This is one of those rare films that can, without reservation, be given an unqualified seal of approval. It stirs both memories and Soul.
