What stood out to me more than anything were the domestic scenes, which were intense and particularly real in a way that surprised me
Agree, I think it's a Spielberg fingerprint as I had similar reactions to domestic scenes in Jaws and Poltergeist.
The whole selection of night time ufo chase scenes at the beginning knocked me sideways as a child. Love this movie.
I watched it a few years ago and was interrupted by the gas meter reading guy, the scene from the desert was showing and he moaned about how unrealistic the helicopter appearing over the hill was because it made no sound. Shut up and get out of my house, (I wish I'd have said)

Dillon had quite a streak b/w this film and A Christmas Story.

That’s very kind of you VG...you’re a saint!
Strangely the character I’ve recently seen who reminds me most of Neary is maybe Miller from The Expanse, a similarly blue-collar type operating under a very different more noir detective form of existential misery, who also gets “imprinted” in a sense and basically abandons his life for what may very well be a one-way ticket to the unknown.
