10 films you must see if you liked “Arrival”

For those who watched and enjoyed Arrival, and would like to see more films like it, here is a list of another 10 films that we strongly recommend (NOTE: The list is not in order of preference):


9 – 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY by Stanley Kubrick (1968)

It’s impossible not to note the links between Arrival – or any ambitious science fiction feature film, for that matter – and Kubrick’s deeply influential 2001: A Space Odyssey. The link is explicitly visual in the spaceships of Villeneuve’s film, which recall the presence of the monolith in 2001. There are other similarities; the one that arguably comes to mind the most is the exploration of human violence and its repercussions that, though dealt with differently on a narrative level, carries similar implications in both features.
