(2017, US) Director: Denis Villeneuve. Screenplay by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green, based on Philip K. Dick’s novel, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, and Blade Runner directed by Ridley Scott.
Cast: Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Robin Wright, Jared Leto

Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner (along with 2001: A Space Odyssey) still stands as the most imaginative and visually awe-inspiring movies ever made about the future. And Denis Villeneuve’s sequel certainly ranks up there in the top ten, by taking three essentials of the original: a provocative prediction of humanity’s future; stunning visuals that transport you into another world; and taking seriously the question of what it means to be an android among humans: Ryan Gosling stars as K, an android who is ordered by a LAPD Lt (Robin Wright) to find and destroy evidence that could incite a replicant rebellion. But K, it turns out, has different ideas… 164 min.
“This stunningly elegant follow-up… ranks as one of the great science-fiction films of all time” –Peter DeBruge, Variety.
