๐Ÿ’ฌ ‘Blade Runner’ at 40: Why the Ridley Scott Masterpiece is Still the Greatest Sci-Fi of All-Time

Replied to ‘Blade Runner’ at 40: Why the Ridley Scott Masterpiece is Still the Greatest Sci-Fi of All-Time by Tom Ward (Esquire)

Blade Runner offers a chance of hope. Hope of a love between two people not meant to love. Hope of freedom, however impossible. A hope as fragile as an origami unicorn, maybe. A hope as beautiful as C-beams glittering in the dark, and as fleeting as tears in rain. Blade Runner is not a film with easy answers. And maybe that is why, forty years later, weโ€™re still remaking it, exploring it, pulling it apart and holding it up to the light.

I agree with Tom Ward, that Blade Runner “is not a film with easy answers.” I remember studying it in Year 12. It was all too much for half the class, so our teacher sent those students to the library with a copy of What’s Eating Gilbert Grape. Not sure if that happens these days.
