Film: Blade Runner 2049.

With this visually staggering film, director Denis Villeneuve brings us to a kind of Ozymandias moment. It just has to be experienced on the biggest screen possible.
Blade Runner 2049 is a narcotic spectacle of eerie and pitiless vastness, by turns satirical, tragic and romantic.
This is the sequel to the 1982 sci-fi classic, directed by Ridley Scott and based on Philip K Dick’s novel Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?, starring Harrison Ford as a “blade runner”, a futureworld cop whose job is to track down and kill disobedient almost-human androids known as replicants.
The 2017 follow-up simply couldn’t be any more of a triumph: a stunning enlargement and improvement. Its mind-boggling, cortex-wobbling, craniofacial-splintering images are there to trigger awe or even a kind of ecstatic despair at the idea of a post-human future, and what it means to imagine the wreck of our current form of homo sapiens.
Evolution has not finished yet, any more than it was finished 100,000 years ago. As so often in literature and cinema, we are reminded that science fiction is there to tackle big ideas, and makes realist genres look flimsy and parochial.
This film delivers pure hallucinatory craziness that leaves you hyperventilating.

In 1941 the great Greta Garbo just walked away.


Greta Garbo, Swedish born American Actress –  1905 to 1990.

Nearly 75 years after she turned her back on the movie industry that made her a superstar, she’s still the pin up girl for premature retirement.
Greta Garbo with Melvyn Douglas in “Two Faced Woman” (1941).
Wanting to be alone was a running theme through her films, so it made sense that, after doing Two-Faced Woman (1941), Garbo walked away from show business.

Later in life, she insisted she never actually said “I want to be alone” in regards to her private life: “
I only said, ‘I want to be left alone’. “There is a world of difference.”
