Arrival project arrival and лика lika star kazantip 2007
As you might expect of a 240SX from Craigslist that was once owned by a 16-year-old, it has an obnoxious, 4-inch diameter exhaust, no-name wheels, and a thing on the handbrake called a drift button, which means the lever doesn’t lock when you yank on it, as I promptly verified (MT tested, ladies and gentlemen).
Louise also has darkness in her life. The opening scenes detail the birth, brief life and death of a child. Throughout, Adams imbues Louise with a quiet, effective emotional undercurrent that’s essential to the film’s success. This is a movie that gets too sterile at times, but Adams is always there to ground it. Villeneuve’s vision is not particularly CGI-heavy, allowing Adams to work in a way that feels relatable. There’s so much going on in this character’s mind and heart, especially in the twisty final act, with which Adams could have “gone big,” but it’s actually one of the more subtle and internal sci-fi movie performances that I’ve ever seen. And it’s a testament to the success of “Arrival” that it’s her face—not the impressive alien ship/creature design—that people will remember.
