    Okay, now I am even more keen on seeing “The Arrival.” Yes indeedy.

    Also: I’m fascinated by the “joker track” thing. Like, every culture has its filters for how to process media, and Uganda chose a kind of DJ/riffer presence, grafted onto the normal “take a seat and watch the movie” setup. And they have fans! I love this whole concept.
