Watch: Denis Villeneuve’s Exploring, Intimate Camera

We could ask for no better director for a ‘Blade Runner’ sequel than Denis Villenueve. The strength of the earlier film was, after all, in imbuing a science fiction tale–a tale of robots, no less–with great emotion and pathos. This video by Roger Okamoto shows us that the work of Villeneuve highlights an important truth about storytelling: any great story is memorable not so much because of its plot as because of the characters, the individuals, who enact it, whether in the tale of love and torment told by ‘Prisoners’ or in the fable of literal and figurative doubleness unfolded in ‘Enemy.’
