I'll probably get the Blu-ray to watch certain scenes again. I liked the Vegas Weekend sequence a lot.

There were a number of visual gags and I can't be sure I spotted them all. The fact that Gosling's spinner is made by Peugeot had me chuckling (my grandma used to own a Peugeot); also, in 2049 the Los Angeles skyscape includes a Pan Am marquee--Ha!

The dumbest thing about the plot is that at the finish you have a character is need of serious medical attention, but that is just ignored so that the big movie ending can go off. This more than anything showed me that the story was in no way important.

I've been listening to it on Spotify since yesterday morning.
Oh, right. I'll check it out there.

It's very much about Bresson (as a human being).
As I surmised. Hence my interest.

I read Wiazemsky's book about the shooting of Au hasard Balthasar a year ago.
Thanks for the tip. I wonder if there's an English translation.

Blade Runner 2049 (2017) IMAX - Visuals: 10/10. Story: 7/10. Nice faux Vangelis score (Zimmer should forget his own "style" and ape Mr. V every time). Impeccable lighting. Compositions and pacing of Kubrickean magnitude (hence the long runtime). The plot works well until it doesn't. Everything goes to shit at the climax (The baddies are taking Ford where? Gosling is trying to do what with his spinner?) This is also the point where it becomes difficult to follow the action. The ending is trite. Practical FX is very good; the CGI doesn't always work ( e.g. long shots of spinners flying over cityscapes). The best FX was Ana de Armas: she teases for the first two hours; finally we get her 50 ft. holographic nude image--that's entertainment! (But is that her actual T&A, or CGI enhancements?) I never want to watch this again, but I'll be buying the OST CD.

Jusqu'au dernier (1957) A good French Film Noir, Raymond Pellegrin (Fernand Bastia) is released from prison after a six month sentence. He goes into hiding at a traveling carnival where his sister Marcella is a fortune teller. The reason he is laying low is because he has double crossed his gang keeping a portion of the loot from a robbery just before he got pinched. Fernand gets a job being a carny barker, there he falls in love with Gina (Jeanne Moreau) but this gets another carney Quedchi jealous.
 
Fredo Riccioni (Paul Meurisse the headmaster from Les Diaboliques), the boss of the gang that pulled the robbery job eventually manages to trace Fernand back to the carnival.
 
There are only a pitiful handful of French Film Noir readily available here, there should be more.
You saw this on disc?

Is it true that Ford is really only in one scene?

Agree if they were supposed to be Texans, I didn't catch that
I'm pretty sure Jake was doing (or trying to do) a Texas accent. He was certainly familiar with West Texas cell usage.
