Reeled In: "Arrival" | Episode 46.5
Posted November 15, 2016
This week, Noah and Chance saw the artful new alien invasion film "Arrival." Directed by Denis Villeneuve, it stars Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner as scientists charged with discovering shell-shaped spacecrafts' purpose on Earth. That familiar premise led Noah and Chance to argue whether "Arrival" is a relative of movies we've seen before or something more meditative with stranger designs. Spoilers are broached in the back half of the show; plus, is this a comforting picture of human potential in the wake of the presidential election?
