Close Encounters, If Anyone Cares: The Movie, “Arrival”

Notwithstanding Sicario has its strengths, the films of Denis Villeneuve have been glaringly flawed.  This includes his latest, the sci-fi enterprise Arrival (2016), which I found mystifying and boring, in that order.

Once again, a space alien visit to the earth is spiritualized, disassociated from any religion.  But it’s phony, fatuous, the product of a screenwriter’s callow thinking.  It doesn’t help that the film leaves the impression that a Chinese general, not the president, is in charge of China.  (At first he’s a villain, but then Amy Adams manages to get him on the phone.)

Arrival is enthrallingly made, but that doesn’t prevent it from being a snooze.
