    Blade Runner 2049

    you Can ‘Blade Runner 2049’ is not the commercial success that they expected their leaders but since then it is being one of the films most highly praised and discussed of the year, making sure the label of the “title of worship” that has the first. One aspect that has generated some controversy in the Internet is the portrait of female characters, and finally Denis Villeneuve has addressed the issue.

    It has been accused the film gender and even “disaster misogynist”, pointing to the sexual charge of the female characters (we only see women engaged in prostitution), their little development, and how to focus on meeting the needs of men. In a recent interview, the director defends himself in the comments with a reminder of his filmography: “I’m very sensitive in how to portrait women in my films. This is my ninth feature film and six of them have women in leading roles“.

    The six works referred to in Villeneuve are the four that made in Canada —’32 August on Earth’ (A’32 août sur terre, 1998), ‘Maelström’ (2000), ‘Polytechnic’ (‘Polytechnique’, 2009), And ‘Incendies’ (2010)— and the two he did prior to ‘Blade Runner 2049’: ‘Hitman’ (2015) and ‘The arrival’ (‘Arrival’, 2016).

    however, the filmmaker seems to be at least partially agree with the sexist when it refers to the classic 1982 directed by Ridley Scott, that recall has a scene romantic between Deckard and Rachael today that could have caused quite a bit of controversy…

    The first Blade Runner was pretty tough with the women; it is something related to the aesthetics of film noir. But I tried to bring depth to all the characters. Joi, the character is holographic, you can see how it evolves. It is interesting, I think,” says Villeneuve.

    In any case, the canadian justifies the portrait of the female characters, providing your vision of the seventh art and the franchise ‘Blade Runner’: “What is the film? The film is a reflection of the reality. Blade Runner does not speak of the morning; it speaks of today. And sorry, but the world is not kind to women“. “[The film] is a vision dystopian of today that magnifies all its flaws. That is all I will say about it“, concludes the director.

    it is Worth to remember that ‘Blade Runner 2049’ starring Ryan Gosling but in the cast there are five actresses with important roles, Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Robin Wright, Mackenzie Davis, Hiam Abbass and Carla Juri. The popular test Bechdel points out that the following must be true in order to assess the portrayal of women in film: at least two female characters with a name, a scene with a conversation between them, and not talk about a man. It seems that ‘Blade Runner 2049’ passed the test although there is no consensus, some of the nuances depend on each viewer. What do you think?
