This book deserves praise for the amount of interesting information about the movie's troubled and complex history, its actors and their relationship to the Director Ridley Scott, and its making from an artistic as well as technical perspective. Highly recommended to all fans. A labour of love. But I must admit one thing: the review of this nice book has been for me just an excuse to express my feelings about the movie: the one that has given me so much at many levels since I first watched it: it is time for me to talk about Blade Runner. Blade Runner is a mesmerizing movie with a deceptively simple story, evocatively presenting timeless themes about humanity, consciousness, personal identity, death and oblivion that run deep at many different levels. It is a story where the two main characters a man and a replicant discover their own humanity and the uniqueness and preciousness of conscious life. But this movie is not a purely intellectual exercise: the haunting loneliness, the jaded love, the desperation for meaning and for more life, all paired with the haunting soundtrack, are deeply felt and simply unforgettable. This is a work of art in cinematic form, pure and simple. I really struggle to convey the beauty and the layers of meaning of this masterpiece, which always polarized critics some of them clearly demonstrating, I think, their inability to get past the narrative surface of the movie and get to the meaning of its elliptical narrative and complex thematics — or maybe they should all undertake the Voight-Kampff test

Future Noir: The Making of Blade Runner

Yes, but also reflecting amazing technical and scientific progress, to an extent that I might even define optimistic in a way, and reflecting faith in the capabilities of humankind, even with all the visible problems affecting its social and ecological environment. A civilization great in its decadence. Exquisite, dreamlike decadence that is also beautifully reflected in the architecturally grandiose but rotting, huge and melancholic apartment building where Sebastian the nerdish main developer of this Nexus replicant technology lives alone with his bizarre creations, an environment imbued with an eerie ambiance.

We have, in the same room, all different levels of consciousness, which challenges you to contemplate the nature, threshold and meaning of consciousness.

Also, the immense, ziggurat-shaped buildings of the Tyrell corporation, engulfed in golden light, and the vast, stark and intimidating Tyrell's office with its huge picture window, all exude an aura of almost religious power, in stark opposition to the anonymous faceless humanity rushing through the rain-drenched, overpopulated lower level streets.

This atmosphere, these environments hit me every time at a deep subliminal level, they provoke in me the same deep reactions that I experience when I contemplate a De Chirico streetscape or some surrealist paintings. The cityscape of LA , where the movie is based, is eerie in its sense of alienation and isolation, even in its bustling overpopulated streets — a sense of isolation that I have seen pictorially rendered in paintings like Nighthawks by Edward Hopper, for example.

But I love this immersive, bleak world populated by a melting pot of styles and cultures, an uber-globalised environment with a heavy Eastern Asian influence. It is like Tokyio which by the way is a stunning city , but with steroids. It is a great movie that keeps giving every time you watch it, but also a visual feast with transcendental and hallucinatory overtones.

The main characters have deeply flawed, ambiguous, morally complex, desperate personalities, whose development mirror and contrast each other. It is a constant struggle between feeling admiration or loath for either of them. And the moral and existential boundaries between the two, between human and replicant, get increasingly blurred as the movie progresses towards its conclusion.

The purely instinctual and even homicidal greed for survival initially demonstrated by Roy the replicant get progressively nuanced and enriched by other elements. A desperation that pushes them close to each other.

It is strangely intimate, and it expresses both the almost paternal pride of Tyrell for his creation and a dim beginning of moral conscience by the replicant, together with his desperate demand for more life, but it ends up with the son killing his father in an act of liberating, unexpected and violent rage.

An act laden with symbolic meanings, from Greek mythology to the potential advent of the so-called technological singularity.

Future Noir: The Making of Blade Runner

Some of the other characters are quite fascinating too — including the female replicant Pris companion of Roy with her strange mixture of erotic appeal, doll-like but super-human athletic strength, ruthlessness and manipulativeness mixed with fragility and insecurity. Gaff the enigmatic veteran Blade Runner and Tyrell himself are also fascinating, even if only but masterfully sketched. Sebastian is also very interesting: he is twenty-five years old, a genius, but his skin is wrinkled and he is fast aging because of a physical condition.

His condition highlights and magnifies the overall themes of mortality, decadence and caducity that appear throughout the narrative.

The most emotionally charged scene of the movie is towards the end, when Roy the replicant, having clearly overwhelmed Deckard with his superior physical abilities, has literally Deckard's life in his hand. Roy's final words express and appreciation for life and for the uniqueness and value of his life experiences, which he almost gently remembers and cherishes, and an appreciation for his own personhood; they are all the more poignant because he is about to die, and he knows it.

The tragedy and pathos to the kind of knowledge of one's mortality that this replicant possesses, make him more human than his human opponent.

While he is dying, he wants to hold onto something that is alive, a white dove that is symbolically released at the very moment of his death. But the deeply human way with which Roy makes us witnesses to his death does not come as a total surprise - glimpses of the developing humanity of this replicant start appearing when he finds his companion dead, with her tongue protruding from her mouth — in a scene of deep tenderness so contrasting to her bizarre, machine-like death, he puts her tongue back into her mouth by kissing her, giving her the dignity she deserved.

It is a very strong moment. Something very similarly later expressed by Roy himself: "Quite an experience to live in fear, isn't it? That's what it is to be a slave". And, most of all, appreciation of the beauty and majesty of the Universe. All features that characterize the short life of Roy, and that make him intensely human. Maybe he represents Human 2. Maybe this is why we are around - what is the point of beauty is there is nobody to contemplate, understand and appreciate it.

His choice to save Deckard is made from a position of strength, an utterly free choice. But the replicant life's meaning is ultimately marked by the manner of his death — and in doing so he shows his human opponent Deckard what humanity is about, he shows freedom and free will that his human opponent has not demonstrated yet. He is a fallen angel that has gained his full meaning by the manner of his dying. Existential angst at its most poetic.

Our short human life is, after all, not so different to the few years lifespan that has been irreversibly hardwired into the basic structure of these replicants — we too have incept dates and a built-in internal obsolescence mechanism. Like Roy, we too long to meet, or at least fathom, our Maker whatever it may be — be it in a theistic, deistic or atheistic version. At least Roy can go and find Tyrell — we can't. And, like Roy, Deckard, and Rachael, we all try to figure out ourselves, consciously or unconsciously.

At the end of the movie we are left to wonder if these replicants are human, and if Deckard is in fact a replicant the hint delivered by the puzzling Deckard's unicorn dream.

But, does it really matter?
