We go in-depth on Denis Villeneuve‘s near three-hour sci-fi epic Blade Runner 2049, in which Ryan Gosling‘s brooding hero is forced to seek out Harrison Ford‘s Deckard, who has spent years in hiding since the events of Ridley Scott‘s original movie. In a wide-ranging chat, we discuss such big issues as the film’s murky gender politics, Gosling’s subdued performance and the nature of humanity. We also compare Villeneuve to Christopher Nolan and decide whether he’s capable of properly depicting emotion on the big screen.
It goes without saying that, if you haven’t seen Blade Runner 2049, you should avoid this podcast. Go and see the movie, then come back.
