My wife and I’s takeaways from Arrival, a wonderful film from director Denis Villeneuve, adapted by Eric Heisserer, starring Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, Forest Whitaker, and created by a number of very talented individuals.
It’s an alien invasion film unlike any other that exchanges the “action” heavy approach the thinking man’s. It emphasizes language, thought, expression of ideas, and cooperation.
It’s a great movie and if you haven’t seen it already, you should watch it as soon as you can. If you have seen it, and still have some questions, watch these videos, “Arrival Movie SPOILER Talk w/ Screenwriter” and “Arrival: A Response To Bad Movies”:
I’d love to engage with you on Twitter if you want to discuss the movie more. I am @JMPin140.
