Naweed’s review published on Letterboxd:
Steven Spielberg’s direction and overall imagination is just wonderful. There’s a reason he’s an all time great and will be remembered for generations. This is part human obsession and our quest for knowledge for something greater than life here on earth.
This really reminded me of Arrival. Where communication plays a big factor. Communication and understanding instead of war and destruction like other extraterrestrial movies.
While the pacing during the middle is off, the last 45 min is awe inducing and a sci-fi lovers dream. John Williams score, the special effects and cinematography all are special.
