Blade Runner - made in 1982


The notion that this movie could have been created almost 40 years ago is astonishing. The graphics are amazing - even by today’s standards. Scene after scene is iconic. The greatest acting work - Rutger Hauer gave the performance of his lifetime. His Time to Die scene - has there ever been a better two minutes? I wish there were more of Edward Olmos.

Add Sean Young - her gradual discovery that she was a replicant - full of implanted memories. We all felt the sadness and pain.

Of course - it presents and torments us with a core ethical question - what is consciousness - what is life?

Remember the woman with the snake draped over her - Harrison Ford chasing her down - Gunning her down? Always wondered what became of her. Maybe the most beautiful woman in the cast.
