Blade Runner ★★★★½

The attention to detail, along with the dreamy score by Vangelis make this one of my favorites of all time. I'm completely transported each time I watch this.

I find myself more and more drawn to the ethical question the movie raises in making it legal to "retire" these androids, who are simply trying to exist. Zhora's moment in the movie, especially, is such a powerful one, compared to the other Replicants who choose to fight Deckard. It's fascinating to me that the most human characters in the movie are frequently the artificial ones!

Brilliant, beautiful, and very rainy.
