BLADE RUNNER 2049
2017, Warner Bros., 164 min, Dir: Denis Villeneuve

Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for decades. Nominated for five Oscars including Best Cinematography, Best Visual Effects, Best Sound Editing, Best Sound Mixing and Best Production Design. Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times said, “What’s remarkable about BLADE RUNNER 2049 is how good it is. The bottom line is indisputable: As shaped by Villeneuve and his masterful creative team, this film puts you firmly, brilliantly, unassailably in another world of its own devising, and that is no small thing.”
