Blade Runner 2049. Dennis Villeneuve. 2017. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
The Ryan Gosling Detective Story aspect of this movie didn't do much for me. Everything else did. It's a shame so much energy was poured into a such a bland narrative. That said, by the time the back half comes around, the movie is fully hypnotic. That + the fact that every relationship in this movie is beautifully rendered means the strengths outweigh the weaknesses here. Still, I kinda wish there had been more Luv.
