I just watched Arrival for the first time last night and it is one of the most beautiful films I’ve ever seen. You know how you watch a movie and once it ends you simply can’t stop thinking about it?
Amy Adams is terrific of course. But sheesh the direction by Denis Villeneuve and screenplay by Eric Heisserer captivated me from start to finish.
There’s a certain aspect of this movie that I don’t see too often but really marks a great film: when you as a viewer have to really pay attention to the entire movie for it to all come together in the end. It’s not just eye candy to sit back and watch. The more you give to the movie the more it gives back. From the experience of a viewer that feeling is second to none.
Will most definitely watch it again soon
