Running time: 117 minutes
One of the most iconic science fiction movies ever made, Blade Runner (1982), directed by Ridley Scott, is an enduring postmodern vision of a city during an era of incessant technological change. Loosely based on the novel, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by American Science Fiction novelist Philip K. Dick, the plot focuses on genetically engineered robots, indistinguishable from humans, who are manufactured by the powerful Tyrell Corporation and banned on Earth. Regarded by Scott as probably his most complete and personal film, it was a box-office failure before gathering its present cult status. Harrison Ford stars as expert 'Blade Runner' (special police operative) Rick Deckard, on a mission to capture a renegade group of these human-like androids who are haunting the city. Set in a dystopian and bleak LA in the year 2019 – full of neon advertising, toxic pollution and flying cars – Blade Runner is a timeless example of its genre and one of the most enduring and influential films of all time.
