Join us in June for our next instalment of Just Cool Cinema, featuring Blade Runner!
This 1982 classic remains cooler than cool even 40 years after its creation.
This science fiction film directed by Ridley Scott, stars Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Sean Young, and Edward James Olmos in an adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s 1968 novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? The film is set in a dystopian future Los Angeles of 2019, in which synthetic humans known as replicants are bio-engineered by the powerful Tyrell Corporation to work on space colonies. When a fugitive group of advanced replicants led by Roy Batty (Hauer) escapes back to Earth, burnt-out cop Rick Deckard (Ford) reluctantly agrees to hunt them down.
Misunderstood when it first hit theatres, the influence of Ridley Scott’s mysterious, neo-noir Blade Runner has deepened with time. A visually remarkable, achingly human sci-fi masterpiece now holds universal acclaim.
