That movie was 'Arrival'.
To be honest, this movie looked like it was going to be a fizzer to me.
But this movie is so deep I think that I need to view it at least another three times to really get it.
Forget about trying to communicate with aliens, because as anyone who has a Facebook account would tell you, communication on this planet is a real minefield/mind-field.
I would hate to see how an alien would go with a Facebook account on this f#cked up planet.

And I like how it was released on the 11th of November, which is Remembrance Day in my part of the world, where we remember the fallen in wars past....and take morphine for the pain and to forget;-)
The other film I saw today was Mel Gibson's brilliant movie, 'Hacksaw Ridge'...and there was plenty of morphine dished out in that movie.
I only went and saw 'Arrival' after reading a post about this film from a website that I respect, called 'The Daily Grail' -
Movie Review: Arrival
All I can say about .'The Daily Grail''s review is that if you promise 'SPOILER ALERTS' then please give us some.
Maybe the 'The Daily Grail''s review is referring to the book the movie is based on, which I have not read, and is considered a spoiler alert?
But 'Arrival' is a film worth seeing on many levels, IMO.
Sometimes it's not words though, sometimes it's movement, or dance, or painting, any kind of active imagination process where you can just express, and sometimes it's non-verbal, if you can get it to words, that's great too, but..."
I know that I have to buy a copy of Kelly's book now with all these banana syncs in the 'Year of the Monkey' that I've been having.
And if you love comedians and this planet as much as I do, then check out another late great comedian's material, Bill Hicks.
Let's hope we can get past this monkey stage in our evolution.
And go see 'Arrival', you won't regret it if you get it.
