Arrival is simply terrific. The story, script, cast, score and design all come together beautifully. If you're feeling downhearted about the future, and who wouldn't be this year, go and see this. You will be both stimulated and moved.
Francesca Woodman - I really like how the artist has managed to create a macabre and ghostly atmosphere within their photograph by getting the sitter to move almost as if they are attempting to shield themselves from the daylight streaming through the open window. I also feel like the scene of destruction within the image, littered all over the floor, also adds to the idea of spirits and the macabre atmosphere.
