Jeff York reviews “Arrival” on The Establishing Shot


Sometimes a film stands in tandem with the times, so prescient in its relevance to what’s going on in the world that it stops being mere entertainment and becomes something utterly profound. Such is the case with the film ARRIVAL that opened just this weekend. After a week that was one of the most dramatic and troubling in our nation’s history, ARRIVAL enters theaters as not just an elixir to soothe what ails us, but should be seen as a must-see essay about how words matter. And words in this post-election are hugely important. We cannot heal and we will not move forward without the right words.
