Good science fiction is as much about the journey into and future of the human condition as it is about alien invasions and space travel. "Third Contact" definitely falls into the former taking the viewer on a chilling journey into the dark recesses of the human psyche, a form of warped inner space exploration wrapped in a gripping piece of cinema.
