WALLPAPER: The Story of Your Life (Arrival)

Desktop wallpaper featuring Louise Banks from Arrival

I completely forgot that I finished this Arrival wallpaper and never posted it. Possibly because I’m not fully happy with it, which is too bad. It looked so awesome in my head! Anyway, I adore this movie. It’s definitely one of my favorites of the year along with Paterson, Melancholia, The Lobster, and 20th Century Women. So many incredible films I’ve seen in the past 7 months. I also read the short story it’s based on afterwards, and it’s brilliant, but I think the screenplay takes to the concept to new heights. The way the narrative ultimately unfolded, the way the flashfowards initially seemed like flashbacks, the way you’re just always on the edge of comprehension until the very end when all is revealed… I’m so impressed by this adaptation to screen. And the heptapod language is incredibly beautiful. I want to learn it!

Next: Better Call Saul, Breaking Bad, Bates Motel, probably some other stuff. I don’t remember what I mentioned last time.
