Arrival proves that first contact movies can still blow your mind | Ars Technica
Arrival proves that first contact movies can still blow your mind | Ars Technica: "Arrival is the riveting, slow-burn story of an alien encounter that's satisfyingly complex. Instead of showing how we blow up the buggers, this movie poses a difficult question: how would we communicate with seemingly peaceful aliens whose language is as impenetrable as whalesong? The welcome surprise is that Arrival explores the answers without shying away from the reality of how linguistics work, as well as the geopolitical consequences of first contact."
Looks great, ma!
