Can you watch Blade Runner (1982) on Netflix?

Can you watch Blade Runner (1982) on Netflix?”

As the our new blade runner K, Ryan Gosling does a very good job of getting beat-up, creating havoc, getting in and out of tight situations and flying around Los Angeles in his hot new vehicle.

The interview kicked off on an interesting note when reporter Alison Hammond admitted that she had never seen Ford's original Blade Runner film. Yes, and then some. Villeneuve quite rightly would prefer that you know nothing about the plot before seeing his film. But in other ways, the sequel is better.

While it may be a bit surprising that director Ridley Scott's "Blade Runner" - which boasts a nice performance by star Harrison Ford, tackles potential dilemmas connected with artificial intelligence and certainly has its champions - led to this film, it shouldn't be considering that at the helm this time is Denis Villeneuve. "(There are) human emotional stories within it, so there was a scope to it that was new to me and exciting to be a part of". Gosling's blade runner "K" (a Kafka-esque nod to his Everyman status and/or authorial surrogacy) drifts through his work with a cold professionalism that nonetheless feels as if it may thaw at any moment into dewy-eyed emotion. Unlike Deckard, whose replicant status is still much debated, whether K is a man-made organic or not is revealed in the opening minutes, subverting expectations about his own existential quest as he's assigned a case that, we're told, threatens to blow the world apart if the world at large ever finds out about it.

Depending on which version of the original you subscribe to, Deckard may be a replicant, or he may not. Hampton Fancher, one of the first movie's screenwriters, returns as a co-screenwriter with Michael Green. "Blade Runner 2049" pivots that science-fiction neo-noir into a science-fiction detective story that tumbles further down the rabbit hole in pursuit of the meaning of humanity and our relationship to technology.

The question, in short, is this: What makes some lives worth living, and some beliefs worth dying for?

The defining characteristic of the original film's set design was that every building, room, and prop had a distinctive sense of weight. "This one was more civilized, just slightly more civilized". Blade Runner 2049 debuts this weekend, and peoples' concerns are disappearing. Villeneuve and the primary studio behind the film, Warner Bros.

The aural presentation, too, is something to be treasured. As a sensory experience, it's often overwhelming, with elegant, grandiose and highly surreal visuals accompanied by a dizzying score from Hans Zimmer ("Dunkirk") and Benjamin Wallfisch. His most intense encounter takes place inside a dilapidated nightclub showroom, with the venue's malfunctioning speakers puncturing dead silence with sudden, ear-piercing stabs of music that leave eerie echoes in their wake. But that Elvis simulation is a striking metaphor for what the audience of BR2049 may be expecting - a careful recreation of a beloved pop culture artifact, one that's acquired the protective coating of "classic" in the many years since its initial, somewhat disreputable appearance. What will likely please them is the devotion by Villenueve and cinematographer Roger Deakins to the aesthetics of the original film.
