An incredibly smart and well thought out movie, Arrival puts a lot of movies to shame in just how lazy most of them are. You can tell that every scene has meaning and every question has the appropriate answer, and it's told with a very well structured pacing.
Amy Adams is a lot better here than in Nocturnal Animals in my opinion, while Jeremy Renner holds his own yet again. Forest Whitaker is also back pretty much being Forest Whitaker. This is a film that will have you thinking and analyzing long after the credits role. Highly recommend.
