An iconic, based on Phillip K. Dick’s novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, science fiction film which takes place in Los Angeles, on November 2019. It tells a tale of Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a law enforcement officer tasked to track down and kill four human-like androids, led by charismatic Batty (late Rutger Hauer). As time passes, Deckard begins to doubt in the ethical purpose of his mission. Ridley Scott’s movie was initially met with moderate interest among critics and audiences. However, Blade Runner has eventually gained recognition for its philosophical ambitions, dark atmosphere, reminiscent of film noir, and Vangelis’s memorable soundtrack. From today’s perspective, Scott’s work tackles the issues of overpopulation, globalization and social inequality. It is also surprising how the director has managed to foresee the most important issues of the contemporary times.
