Double Feature with ALIEN (4:30, 9:30)

(2016) dir Denis Villeneuve w/Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, Forest Whitaker, Michael Stuhlbarg [116 min; DCP]
When mysterious alien craft start descending upon the world, who do you call to try and communicate with them? A linguist of course! Amy Adams plays a university professor teamed with a physicist (Renner) tasked with deciphering what the aliens are here for before some trigger-happy military official launches an attack.

“The best film of the year to date, ambitious in conception and extraordinary in execution, has arrived.” – Christopher Orr, The Atlantic

“By turns inviting and opaque, Ms. Adams turns softness and quiet into heroic qualities, keeping her voice low, modulated, and using stillness to draw you near.” – Manohla Dargis, New York Times

“Fine, full-bodied filmmaking, with a sense of the alien-ness out there in the universe that flatters our intelligence while making us feel tantalizingly small.” – Ty Burr, The Boston Globe

“It is simultaneously old and new, revisiting many of these alien-invasion conventions but with unexpected intelligence, visual style and heart.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
