Blade Runner (Final Cut)

Selected by Martine Gutierrez

Ridley Scott’s adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? might not be the most faithful, but Blade Runner has become enshrined in the halls of science-fiction classics all the same. Bringing Dick’s tale of lifelike androids into a groundbreaking futuristic noir city, Scott’s film is one of the most influential in the history of the genre.

Harrison Ford stars in this fascinating, dark vision of the near future as a policeman who tracks engineered humans—a Blade Runner. In the year 2019, the police department forces Rick Deckard (Ford) out of retirement to hunt four genetically engineered humans who have come to earth. Designed to do difficult, hazardous work, the manufactured humans are stronger, faster and smarter than non engineered humans. They feel no pain or remorse; they are almost indistinguishable from other humans, and they are killing people. Now Deckard must stop them before they kill again.
