Blade Runner 2049
The key to the future is finally unearthed.
Philip K. Dick Series Episode 12
With Ford revisiting so many characters I’m waiting for Frantic 2 — Walker’s Revenge!
In the early ’80s, the dawn of home video, it would be easy to think movies had a lifespan of only four years. But Ridley Scott’s creation Blade Runner escaped box-office failure to find its own life. Its imagery still influences artists 35 years after being released, and it’s spawned novels, video games, and more. But now this dystopian vision returns to big screens with a sequel: Blade Runner 2049. Harrison Ford returns as Deckard, a man with secrets sought after by a new Blade Runner played by Ryan Gosling. Can director Denis Villeneuve craft a vision that we’ll still be discussing in 2052? Listen to this review to find out!
