Yes, Arrival is dark and is what the director intended it to look like...but...maybe not as crushed as what I was seeing initially.
I have been using Dynamic Contrast on "Low" for this and other HDR movies and, on my yet to be calibrated C6P, this helps greatly. Note that this is for HDR material only, DC should be off on normal SDR content.
