Blade Runner 2049

October 6, 2017
True to form, the otherworldliness of Dennis Villeneuve’s (Arrival, Sicario) and Ridley Scott’s neo-noir sequel Blade Runner 2049 pays homage to the original 1982 cult-classic blockbuster Blade Runner, as the visual and audio experience is even more evocative, invasive, and unsettling than the [...]
