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):
2 – SICARIO by Denis Villeneuve (2015)
If you liked the tension of Adams & co.’s ascents in the extra-terrestrial spacecraft, you will also like the tension of Villeneuve’s previous feature, the drug-cartel thriller drama Sicario. A pivotal sequence on the highway to the Mexican border particularly stands out, and similarly makes use of the bass tones in its soundtrack to heighten the tension. This film is also proves how talented Villeneuve is in breaking up one single moment to build up a tension in a distinctively visceral way.
