One of film's greatest.
on October 21, 2017
Perhaps among the best all time films ever made, (that will eventually creep up on everyone like Casablanca). It has depth, though dark and dreary -- (and one does wonder why Sean Young would wear a chinchilla-like coat in the pouring rain) -- but ever intriguing and interesting, and not blasted through with unnecessary sex and nudity. This particular version was by the studio in the early 90's, sans the theatrical original's voiceover; Ridley's personal "Final" cut was not out until 2007. Truly doesn't make much difference which one you get. Yes, the later blu-ray's are sharp and clear, indeed. But the blurry print of this one can't be help, and still lends to it's overall mystique. The music track is also that perfect blending of sound and atmosphere and ambiance, forever superb. A story well told, touching, and sticks with you long after. Its truths, plainly eternal.
(And the issue of Deckard: a replicant or not? An airy question, never solved. The ambiguity is part of the magic.) Enjoy.
Unfortunately, I sadly have to say, the sequel, 2049, was so convoluted I didn't have a clue what was going on from after the first kill. Nothing after that made two drops of sense, much less "one." Very, very, very disappointing.
