“All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.”
Blade Runner is a 1982 science fiction film directed by Ridley Scott which is set in a dystopian future Los Angeles of 2019, in which synthetic humans known as replicants are bio-engineered by the powerful Tyrell Corporation to work on space colonies. When a fugitive group of advanced replicants led by Roy Batty escapes back to Earth, burnt-out cop Rick Deckard reluctantly agrees to hunt them down.
Enigmatic and ambiguous, Blade Runner is a compelling and thought-provoking classic that I’m glad I finally got around to, particularly the Final Cut.
The world here is so fascinating, filled with compelling characters and effects that put modern day ones to shame still.
Harrison Ford is great in an atypically stoic and brooding role, and his cast mates in the beautiful Sean Young and fantastic Rutger Hauer make for a great cast.
The cinematography is absolutely gorgeous throughout and the score was fantastic.
I also like that the film allows you to come to your own conclusions, it truly feels unique in style and tone.
Overall, I absolutely loved this.
