Watched 'The Wailing' a couple of nights ago. I normally enjoy South Korean films. Funny enough, in this instance all the actual 'wailing' and crying the main character did annoyed the fudge out of me lol. 2.5/5

The Handmaiden was killer! I know it's been mentioned several times in this thread. But damn, that was great.

Finally watched and enjoyed Arrival (2016). A couple of observations: the alien species highlighted the fact that our language constrains and circumscribes our way of thought. Their advanced conception of physics, Time in particular, derives from their innate language which provides a way of understanding reality.

By happenstance I encountered a similar argument in Eric Kandel’s Reductionism In Art and Brain Science. As a neuroscientist he delves into the biological underpinnings of aesthetic experience with an emphasis on abstract art - a visual language he argues that demands a greater challenge to the viewer’s eye and mind and deforms our normal habits of perception. Hence Abstraction can provoke a new way of understanding reality.
