In Ridley Scott’s brooding, doom-laden thriller set in a spectacularly imagined future Los Angeles, a hired killer named Deckard (Ford) tracks down a group of renegade androids who have escaped from slavery on a colonised planet.
Loosely based on Philip K. Dick’s paranoid masterpiece Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, and undoubtedly one of the most influential sci-fi movies of all time, Blade Runner was famously butchered in previous studio versions, including a so-called director’s cut that was nothing of the sort. This ‘final cut’ is the only version over which Scott had full artistic control, and it screens now, for one day only and from a digital print, for the first time in cinemas since 2007.
Blade Runner: The Final Cut, dir. Ridley Scott, USA/Hong Kong/UK 2007, 117 mins.
