Pop culture obsessives writing for the pop culture obsessed.

After 35 years of science-fiction movies only inspired by—or blatantly derivative of—Ridley Scott’s landmark dystopian noir, they finally made another Blade Runner: a nearly three-hour, big-budget art movie masquerading as a blockbuster, starring Ryan Gosling as a new era’s robot-hunting answer to Harrison Ford (who also, as the trailers reveal, makes an appearance). On this episode of Film Club, A.A. Dowd and Ignatiy Vishnevetsky take a return trip to Scott’s rainy metropolitan future to discuss what works and what doesn’t about this belated, highly anticipated sequel from Arrival director Denis Villeneuve.
