'Blade Runner 2049' takes us back to the future

• Four stars out of four •

Calvin Wilson / St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“Blade Runner 2049” is a big-budget art film that’s likely to frustrate as many moviegoers as it fascinates. Some will complain that it’s too long, or too confusing, but such criticisms are simply beside the point. Very much in the spirit of the original “Blade Runner” (1982), the film is more slow burn than slam-bang. And for that true cinema buffs surely will be grateful. Working from a script by “Blade Runner” co-author Hampton Fancher and Michael Green (“Logan”), director Denis Villeneuve (“Arrival”) delivers a moody, visually stunning celebration of existential angst. Not that he skimps on the kind of mayhem that’s de rigueur these days, but you have to wait for it — and wait for it. But when it does arrive, it’s awesome.

Ford is generating Oscar buzz for his return to the role of Deckard, and Gosling brings to K a touching soulfulness.

“Blade Runner 2049” is not just a movie but an event. Don’t be the only human on your block not to see it.

In the wake of the sexual revolution and the rise of the women's movement, the 1973 tennismatch between women's World #1 Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and ex-men's-champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) was billed as the BATTLE OF THE SEXES and became one of the most watched...Read more

'Battle of the Sexes' is so much more than a sports comedy

• 4 stars out of four •

Calvin Wilson - St. Louis Post-Dispatch

The fact-based “Battle of the Sexes” is being marketed as a feel-good sports comedy, but there’s much more going on in this hugely entertaining and Oscar-worthy film. Working from a screenplay by Simon Beaufoy (“Slumdog Millionaire”), co-directors Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris (“Little Miss Sunshine”) examine the making of the King-Riggs match to comment on just how much American culture has — and hasn’t — changed in only 44 years. The film’s portrayal of a smart but controversial woman who’s forced to face off against a showboating clown may strike some viewers as eerily familiar.

Stone persuasively gets inside King’s skin, and Carell somehow makes Riggs both loathsome and likable.

This is mainstream filmmaking at the top of its game.
