It is very, very close to being fantastic.

If Pearce weren't so heavy-handed... then Encounter, a flawed sci-fi flick with a simple premise, could be a great adventure fit for the stars.

Exactly half of a good movie.

December 9, 2021 | Full Review…

In an era of, frankly, incredulous credulity where shared delusions are leaping from the screen to your aunt's Facebook page, and gullibility is literally infectious, Encounter insists that skepticism is a virtue.

December 6, 2021 | Rating: B | Full Review…

A drama that walks the fine line between science-fiction alien-invasion terror, a portrait in war-induced paranoia and a story of a broken family, "Encounter" is a prime showcase for (Riz) Ahmed's wiry electricity.

December 6, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

An affecting meld of inner and outer worlds in which family stresses and extraterrestrial spectres collide.
