Blade Runner: The Final Cut by Ridley Scott, 1982 (R) 117min

with Harrison Ford (Morning Glory), Rutger Hauer, Sean Young, Edward James Olmos (Battlestar Galactica), M. Emmet Walsh, Daryl Hannah, William Sanderson, Brion James, Joe Turkel, Joanna Cassidy, James Hong, Morgan Paull

In a smog-choked dystopian Los Angeles, blade runner Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) is called out of retirement to snuff a quartet of escaped "replicants" -- androids consigned to slave labor on remote planets -- seeking to extend their short life spans. This definitive special edition of director Ridley Scott's classic features his restored and remastered version with added scenes.

Ah, classics... ah K. Dick... (Blade Runner, I. Robot, Total Recall, Minority Report, The Adjustment Bureau...) What not to love? So what, shall we say perhaps it is a nicer version without the narrator, the acting is impeccable, the aesthetic hasn't gone old, the script is beautifully existential, poetic, and the love story in a way, tragic. Anyway, before we lost power on Sandy, the last reminder of our society evolution has been Blade Runner. Pleasure!
