Blade Runner

117' - 1982 - Science Fiction, Action, Drama - Dialogue: Hungarian, Arabic, German, Korean, English, Cantonese, Japanese
Director: Ridley Scott, Philip Askins Composer: Vangelis With: Nicolas Lees, Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Sean Young
A brilliantly conceived and designed film, “Blade Runner” has become a cult favourite. Its $27 million price tag shows in the astonishing sets of 21st-century L.A. Rain, mist, and fog swirl about titanic structures built upon the ruins of the city, as mammoth space machines lumber about promoting the good life on the “off-world colonies”. Earth is in decay. The best of the human race has departed for greener space pastures, leaving the dregs to mill around in the congested streets. Deckard accepts a "freelance" assignment tracking down a group of cyborgs who have mutinied and returned to Earth, seeking to prolong their short life span by altering their programmed mechanisms.
