‘You could take any shot and hang it in a museum’ – Lucas Bertoni, Canada
You could take any shot in this film and hang it in a museum. As a follow-up to one of the most acclaimed science fiction films of all time, 2049 succeeds as a sequel and a film in its own right. Equal parts noir, drama and thriller intermingled with classic sci-fi themes of humanity and wonder, it serves as a roaring achievement, the kind of film Hollywood can produce if it acts a little more bravely.
‘A film of intriguing dystopia’ – Ben Anstruther, Edinburgh
Although it faced tough competition from the equally breathtaking Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 is an outstanding visual buffet that allows its viewers to cram in all they can, but expertly lets them digest the rich themes and sumptuous surprises. A superlative cinematic experience where the euphoric sound and stunning, Oscar-requiring cinematography only scratch the very surface of its intriguing dystopia and multi-layered mysteries.
