    Long-overdue rewatch of this. Woefully underrated it first time around. A gorgeous, thrilling mess of loose ends, non-sequiturs and accidental victories/defeats. PTA's third-best, in my opinion.

    Rewatched in advance of seeing the sequel. Better than I remembered it. Think my late-period Boyle agnosticism had dulled my nostalgia for it. Every bit as funky, junky and irresponsible as it was 20+ years ago. And they all look so young!

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    The only aspect of the story that I didn't quite buy was Jeremy Renner as a scientist. Everything else - heptapods, their language, non-linear time, Michael Stuhlbarg's hair, the continued renaissance of Forest Whitaker - completely involved me. Amy Adams has never been better and after this and Sicario, colour me super-fucking-excited for the new Blade Runner.

    Better than The Force Awakens. A crackerjack men-on-a-mission flick that overcomes some missteps (CGI Cushing and Leia chief among them) by being fleet, fun genre fare.
