Blade Runner 2049

Blade Runner 2049 ★★★★

Kind of shocked to find upon rewatching this after a couple of years that it’s even better than I remembered it. Its theme of lost family is incredibly moving; it really seems to understand the angst of trying to hold together familial bonds under the duress of a brutal caste system. Just about all of the performances are magnificent, particularly the weirdly enthusiastic but determined Sylvia Hoeks as Luv. It’s a perfect companion to the original.
