"Arrival video essay. I explore how Denis Villeneuve communicates the perfect message of cooperation using language in his 2016 film Arrival, starring Amy Adams as Dr. Louise Banks. The Director's storytelling and filmmaking do so by conveying important metaphors, messages and symbolism towards the nature of reality. My road to Dune 2021 series continues with video essays every month on all of Denis Villeneuve's filmography, the Dune adaptations and Dune 2021 movie related topics. Paul Atreides leads nomadic tribes in a battle to control the desert planet Arrakis. Dune is an upcoming epic science fiction film directed by Denis Villeneuve with a screenplay by Jon Spaihts, Villeneuve, and Eric Roth. The film is an international co-production of Canada, Hungary, the United Kingdom, and the United States. It is the first of a planned two-part adaptation of the 1965 novel of the same name by Frank Herbert, which will cover roughly the first half of the book. The film stars an ensemble cast including Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Zendaya, David Dastmalchian, Chang Chen, Sharon Duncan-Brewster, Charlotte Rampling, Jason Momoa, and Javier Bardem." from video introduction.
