saw: arrival

Arrival has some agreeably serious science-fiction aspirations, but it gets wonky and metaphysical during the third act in a way that, while never less than tasteful—and never as mawkish as, say, Contact's dead-dad denouement—dulls the hardness of the premise and trusses it up in superfluous gauze. Grade: B
