“Blade Runner” is a Science Fiction film, originally released in 1982, with stylistic roots in the hardboiled “film noir” classics of the 1940′s. It has turned out to be one of the most influential films ever made. Blade Runner presents a certain vision of the future that has been copied a thousand times over, presenting a dark future vision that may prove to be all too prophetic.
Blade Runner is sometimes called a “cult classic” and others refer to it as “the most influential Science Fiction film ever made”. Considering that Blade Runner is not just a well known Science Fiction film, but regularly appears in “Top 100 Favourite Movies Ever” lists (and Top 10s in some countries), it is perhaps surprising that the worldwide popularity of the film isn’t more widely recognised. This is no minor cult movie; it is one of the most loved films of the 20th Century! So don’t be surprised that there are other Blade Runner fans out there – they are everywhere!
