I'm down! just give me a day or so to collect myself because I just got off of work (at 4 in the fucking morning) and have to turn around and go back to work again in another 11 hours. I'm a regular skinjob, I tells ya.

I've been reading this analysis of Blade Runner 2049 that breaks down its many literary references. It's pretty illuminating stuff, and the comments section is worth a read as well.

that is a really beautiful piece, thanks for sharing.

I actually think this film is so good that is makes Blade Runner better retroactively. I can't wait for it to come out on blu ray so I can rewatch it a few times and really digest every bit of it. I referenced 2001 before in terms of how slow the film can be but I also think it is the 2001 of 2017 in an intellectual sense, only better. I only wish our public school system wasn't so rife with uptight administrators and parents because I think that kids should be introduced to abstract concepts and existentialist thought and films like this are a great way to do it. I would LOVE to teach a Social Studies or English course based on using films as the main resource for discussion. no, I wouldn't be using movies like Braveheart or Platoon, but I WOULD use movies like The Deer Hunter or Paths of Glory or A Clockwork Orange or 12 Angry Men or Cool Hand Luke or The Yearling or To Kill a Mockingbird etc, etc
