One of the most renowned Hollywood movies of the last few years. Directed by Denis Villeneuve and produced by Ridley Scott, it is a sequel to cult classic Blade Runner. Blade Runner 2049 takes place thirty years after events of the first movie. K (Ryan Gosling), a LAPD officer, discovers a secret that could disrupt the social order. During the investigation, K decides to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), an ex-blade runner, who remains in hiding for years. What will come of such extraordinary meeting? Blade Runner 2049 is a spectacular, yet gloomy vision of the future, but also a movie filled with intertextual references—for example, it alludes to Vladimir Nabokov’s Pale Fire. Although the bar was set very high, Villeneuve’s movie managed to satisfy expectations of Blade Runner’s fans and was praised by the critics. Blade Runner 2049 also received five nominations for the Academy Awards, and won two of them (for Best Cinematography and Best Visual Effects).
Oscars 2018 – Best Cinematography, Visual Effects; BAFTA 2018 - Best Cinematography, Visual Effects
