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):
3 – SOLARIS by Andrei Tarkovsky (1972)
The theme of linguistics in Arrival is also to be found in the earlier film Solaris by Tarkovsky. The film, in fact, revolves around the inadequacy of communication between humans and other species. Shades of the great Soviet filmmaker are present in Villeneuve’s directing; the two are particularly unafraid to slow down the pace of the psychology of the narrative to a meditative grinding halt and infuse their apparent forays in genre films with more emotional depth than other contemporary features.
