Blade Runner - The Final Cut

Blade Runner - The Final Cut
Thriller, Sci-Fi | 1982 | R. 1hr 57min
CAST: Harrison Ford, Sean Young, Rutger Hauer, Daryl Hannah DIRECTOR: Ridley Scott WEIRD ELEPHANT SERIES

A blade runner must pursue and terminate four replicants who stole a ship in space, and have returned to Earth to find their creator.

"Here’s the true director’s cut, personally assembled by Scott and released into theaters in 2007 under the moniker the Final Cut. Everything was as Scott had originally wanted it: The unicorn dream appears in its fullest and unexpurgated version, the violent scenes from the international edit have been reinserted, the picture has been fully spiffed up, and the sinuous electronic score from Greek composer Vangelis has never sounded better. This is probably the version to start with, artistically preferable to the theatrical cut and now shown in repertory theaters more widely, too. The title’s perfectly apropos, this hard-won authoritative edit being the end result of a long legal battle between studios to free up the license to Scott’s original footage. True fans will accept no substitute." (FULL ARTICLE)

This is perhaps the only science-fiction film that can be called transcendental.

The definitive sci-noir.

It seems ageless, despite being set in 2019. This is a future more murky than shining, where hardened men move among the lowlife in a warren of streets lit like an Edward Hopper painting, below pyramid-like skyscrapers.
