Denis Villeneuve, VS 2017
language: english – subtitles: dutch
‘a gigantic spectacle of pure hallucinatory craziness’
A new ‘blade runner’ – police officer K (Ryan Gosling) – discovers a long hidden secret that has the potential to create total chaos. K’s discovery sends him on a search for the former ‘blade runner’ Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), who has been missing for thirty years.
‘What defines a human being?’ That is the question posed by director Denis Villeneuve. And the surprising answers suggested in his new film, Blade Runner 2049 challenge people’s notions of who we are… and where we are headed.
It’s not the first time the value—and values—of humanity have been questioned.
Thirty-five years ago, the groundbreaking science fiction film Blade Runner hit theatre screens for the first time. Directed by the legendary Ridley Scott and based on the Philip K. Dick novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, the movie thrust audiences into a future unlike anything they had ever experienced that is at once familiar and unfamiliar.
Back then, no one could have imagined how Blade Runner would go on to reverberate through modern culture, pioneering what became an entirely new genre: neo-noir cyberpunk. Today, Scott’s visionary masterpiece is heralded as one of the best and most important motion pictures of all time, but its impact has gone beyond filmdom, to television, music, art, fashion, and even university courses.
Now, after more than three decades, ‘Blade Runner 2049’ returns us to the world that has enthralled generations of fans in a film that is, at once, a long-awaited follow-up and a much-anticipated stand-alone moviegoing experience.
