Blade Runner

This time, I dashed into another pleasant surprise.. I’m a big fan of the rain, SF and film-noir and I knew this movie is good at that, yet I never expected to find such an aesthetic and moral power breathing out of it.

Firstly, Blade Runner is probably one of the most iconic SF films ever made. For many times during the movie I completely forgot what the plot was and became so fully immersed in the world: it’s vast, rich, beautiful, filled with so many details and every frame reminds us that very fact.

Secondly, the plot is not very impressive, it does not boost the usual SF epic, but rather acts as a support for the characters to evolve into and for the world to be presented onto: the movie is abundant in philosophy and makes good use of its motives. In that regard, the viewer often finds himself wondering about the conventions of human nature, morality, technology and others. Nevertheless, the most important question the movie raises is whether the main protagonist is a replicant (robot) himself or a human being. We don’t get an answer this, but rather some ambiguity regarding that topic, which leaves us to appreciate the answer from our own perspective.

Lastly, I want to notice once more the richness of this movie’s motives and film-noir conventions. By exceeding at that, Blade Runner manages to take a special place when it comes to iconic, SF cult following movies.
