Just got back from seeing it.
So, I'll post no spoilers here, or review links - and suggest we let everyone go in with an open mind when they see it, so to speak.
It was artfully done, the approach to the contact with an alien life form was kind of interesting from an artistic standpoint.
(I like Zen art).
I had sensed a couple of Terrence Malik moments near the end.
I don't particularly like overly narrative films and prefer a film that provides an experience and require you to draw conclusions.
There was a degree of real strangeness to several scenes and the difficulty in confronting an alien intelligence and the problem with how to deal with the communication problem was handled well enough.
This film relied heavily on some dislocated flashbacks in the storytelling, and if the goal was to put our Newtonian concept of cause and effect in juxtaposition with quantum theory as a an undercurrent to how we experience reality and time, well, it did that.
I have to say I was lost in the end, I kind of felt like.......where am I in this movie?
First thought was that Intersteller did what they were trying to do a tad more effectively.
