Arrival is a sober, tender and optimistic film, held together by the director's offbeat but firm command of tone and his star's unswerving commitment.

As I've said, I've seen Arrival three times-for critical and then therapeutic reasons-and it takes to the light differently with each revisit, much like the edgeless ships hovering over the earth's surface.

Everything about Arrival feels meticulously crafted, from the gorgeously composed shots to the Jóhann Jóhannsson score.

Most of it is masterfully assembled, with great near-wordless performances from Renner ... and especially Adams, who conveys everything we want from a hero without stepping outside the bounds of a fallible human.

Like Contact and Interstellar before it, Arrival conflates inner and outer space, where contact with alien intelligence is the balm that heals one's own psychic wounds, a cosmic Oprah Winfrey delivering closure.

Arrival is bold, emotionally-resonant and poignant. It's science fiction at its most beautiful with a finale that will simultaneously make your heart swell and break.

Arrival is the kind of science fiction film we dream of. It's got big stars, a bigger concept, and the longer it goes, the more it demands of its audience. The pacing is methodical, the story captivating, and filmmaking beautiful.

Walks a delicate balance between science fiction spectacle and art house head trip.

The result is a wondrous achievement, one that combines mystery and meaning in a way so rarely found in mainstream movies.
