    “Sometimes I jump ahead in our life together, and I see a time near the end. I can predict the future, and everything is settled.

    It's impossible for a movie to look better than this.

    Where the rambling of an avid film student's critique usually starts with an infatuated commentary on the director, it's hard not to admit that the cinematography for Blade Runner 2049 is the dominant player. Roger Deakins is quite clearly an auteur in his own right, creating an extended universe of his own through the vibrancy of his lighting. Taking the steely blue pallet of Prisoners and merging it with the…
