“Blade Runner 2049” (Dir. Denis Villeneuve, 2017)
In 2022, Zhao spoke with Google TV about her favorite movies and TV shows. One of her choices was “Blade Runner 2049,” Denis Villeneuve’s acclaimed followup to the ’80s cyberpunk classic. Zhao spoke about how the film speaks to her because it transports its audience members to another world.
“Every detail, structure, colors, how is this character interacting with the location,” Zhao said. “All of that says so much about that character.”
