Blade Runner 2049 (Denis Villeneuve – 2017) A

Remarkable sequel to the 1982 film. It picks up 30 years later where we meet K, a blade runner replicant hunting versions of his own kind who are in hiding. He makes a discovery at one such site that could change everything in the human/replicant relationship. The movie proceeds from that point with a look, feel and pace very much in line with the original. The art direction again is stellar as we get enveloped in the same world of gloomy exteriors, huge holograms and awesome technology. From one scene to the next this is a world that feels lived-in and real. After loving Arrival and Sicario, I knew that Villeneuve would do this right and he did not dissapoint.
