For Christmas 2018, filmmaker Martin Villeneuve brought his older brother Denis Villeneuve back a bunch of magazines (Fantastic Films and Starlog) that he happened to find by chance in their parents' basement. It was Denis' first contact with Blade Runner (1982) and Dune (1984) back in the early 1980s. Coincidentally, the still photographer who had taken the pictures of Blade Runner (1982) that Denis discovered around thirty-seven years ago, Stephen Vaughan, died on December 31, 2018, but his art lives on. Here's the exact quote from Denis: "Blade Runner is one of my favorite movies of all time. It's a movie that is linked with my love and passion for cinema. I'm coming from a small town in Québec where, at that time, there was no internet and the way to be in contact with movies were those American fan magazines like Fantastic Films and Starlog and I still remember the shock, the impact of seeing the first frames, the first pictures coming out of Blade Runner. Me and my friends were in awe, so excited and the movie was such a strong cinematic experience. A new way of seeing sci-fi." Stephen Vaughan was also the still photographer on this movie. See more »
(at around 1h 40 mins) While exploring the abandoned casino, K gives a casual one-handed spin to a roulette wheel. We never see the ball and various theories purport that it is not possible to launch the ball. It is fully possible to pick up a ball sitting in the part of the wheel we cannot see due to the camera angle, and roll it and give the wheel a spin in one motion. See more »
I hope you don't mind me taking the liberty. I was careful not to drag in... any dirt.
