It's November 2019. In Los Angeles, Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) is hunting down a fugitive group of replicants, synthetic humans that have been created to work on off-world colonies, who have escaped and returned to Earth.
Ridley Scott follows up Alien with this visually stunning, existentially challenging, dystopic neo-noir sci-fi. A box-office flop upon release, the film has since been wildly influential and developed a strong cult following.
'It remains Scott's most ambitious, fully-realised film. The replicants chased by Harrison Ford's cop come saddled with an inbuilt four-year lifespan. Blade Runner, in all its various, shimmering incarnations, is deathless' - The Guardian
'It seems ageless, despite being set in 2019. This is a future more murky than shining, where hardened men move amoung the lowlife in a warren of streets lit like an Edward Hopper painting, below pyramid-like skyscrapers' - The Times
