Movie Spotlight

Blade Runner (1982)

As Denis Villeneuve's sequel arrives, the moment is right to revisit Ridley Scott's pioneering and much-debated sci-fi noir masterpiece. The movie showed a future that wasn't all slick starships and sterilized environments, but a decaying, imploding representation of the limits of a consumer-driven culture, where freedom itself is a commodity.

Grand Illusion

Directed by Jean Renoir

POW Drama, Anti-War Film, Escape Film, Message Movie, War Drama - 111 Minutes - 1937

Frequently cited as both one of the greatest films about war and one of the greatest films ever made, Jean Renoir's Grand Illusion is an often witty, sometimes poignant, frequently moving examination of the futility of war. Set during World War I, Allied soldiers are brought together in German POW camps, and escape quickly becomes the priority. (Available on FilmStruck)
