Dork Shelf Film Critic Jason Gorber sits down with Arrival star Mark O’Brien to discuss the film, director Denis Villeneuve, and his massive movie collection.
Arrival is one of the most extraordinary, affecting films of the year, a delicate balance between intellect and passion, finding ways to entertain while opening one’s mind up.
Arrival opens across Canada November 11th, but you can attend an advanced screening courtesy of Paramount Pictures and Dork Shelf on November 9th in Toronto, Montreal or Ottawa.
Denis Villeneuve's Arrival is quite simply one of the most extraordinary, affecting, and eye-opening films of the year.
Sicario is an impeccably paced and executed action thriller from Denis Villeneuve, a director who is quickly proving himself to be a national treasure.

Led by Best Picture, Director, and Supporting Actress winner Boyhood, the Toronto Film Critics Association has announced their award winners for the best of film in 2014.
Quietly menacing and deeply cerebral, Dennis Villeneuve’s unnerving psychological thriller Enemy gets a huge boost from a great dual performance from Jake Gyllenhaal as a man whose potential double life could be splitting the fabric of space and time around him.
We sit down with actor Jake Gyllenhaal and Canadian director Denis Villeneuve about their second collaboration on the award winning doppelganger thriller Enemy and about the clearly defined roles of the main characters, how the simplest mannerisms can define an entire character, who Gyllenhaal thinks the real protagonist of the film is, why Villeneuve wanted to set and shoot the film in Toronto, and if they will collaborate again.
Canadian films Gabrielle and Enemy took home major film awards at last night's Canadian Screen Awards, while Call Me Fitz and Orphan Black ruled the television side of the evening's festivities.
Tomorrow night the best and brightest in Canadian movies and television get celebrated with the Canadian Screen Awards (airing on CBC at 8:00pm, hosted by Martin Short). Our Film and Performing Arts editor looks at this year's nominees, makes a couple of predictions, and wonders aloud why only technically three of the Best Feature nominees have actually been released in theatres.
Think 2013 was a weak year for Canadian cinema? Think again because most of the best work from this past year is merely being sat on for release this year. Our Film Editor looks at this year's TIFF Canada's Top Ten (kicking off this weekend) and the finest line-up of Canada's best to date.
Gorgeously shot and impeccably directed by Canadian filmmaker Denis Villeneuve, Prisoners still has a bit too much going on across its two and a half hour running time. It never fully bogs down until it becomes a completely different – and sadly far less satisfying – movie in its final 40 minutes.
