Blade Runner: The Final Cut (15) – 1982, USA, 117 mins
Director: Ridley Scott
Screening on the occasion of the film’s iconic future time-setting, November 2019, and to honour its real hero Rutger Hauer. A bounty hunter, Deckard, hunts for fugitive, murderous replicants and is forced to question his own ‘humanity’.
“Written by Hampton Fancher and David Webb Peoples, adapted from Philip K. Dick’s 1968 novel ‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?,’ Blade Runner tells a story set in then distant future: it’s 2019, Los Angeles, and an ex-detective Deckard is called back from retirement to hunt down six replicants who escaped from one of Earth’s colonies and sought refuge somewhere among us. It’s this dystopian look at the future, rich in detail, strong in emotion, that served as inspiration to many other filmmakers in their subsequent attempts to portray the dark years ahead of us.” – Cinephilia & Beyond
