Arrival, 2016 - ★★★★

My second Amy Adams film of the weekend and whereas Nocturnal Animals was brilliant throughout this grows towards its greatness. I was left confused behind the motivations but perhaps that isn't too important because this isn't the real story. The amount of time spend on the final scenes suggest it is supposed to be a revelation but it's clear much earlier what is happening which may have taken something away from me. Rather than being the brilliant film I was expecting (and others are seeing) I was left satisfyingly impressed much like I have been with all of Villeneuve's films.
