A motion picture masterpiece on the short list of Reasons Why This Medium is Worthwhile.

Antagony & Ecstasy

It takes a particularly weird kind of sincerity to end a movie that has been for its entire running time an exploration of surfaces... with its most sublime and humane gesture.

This is perhaps the only science-fiction film that can be called transcendental.

[VIDEO ESSAY] Blade Runner is one of the most enigmatic yet problematic science fiction films ever made.

A quintessential film noir of the 1980s, much underestimated at the time of release.

As a display terminal for the wizardry of Designers Lawrence G. Paull, Douglas Trumbull and Syd Mead, the movie delivers.

For all its armor of brutalizing urban dystopia (and, boy, is there a lot of that -- you could fund a war on terror with the fog- and rain-machine budgets alone), Blade Runner has a gooey center.

It may be a quarter of a century old, but Blade Runner still seems like the future . . .

Probably close to being on par with Fritz Lang's Metropolis in terms of grandeur -- although of a stunningly different and far more unsettling kind.

The new version helped me see the soul because, ironically, this rendering is so much brighter. Noir or not, a film you can't see properly is a film you can't fully appreciate.

Though it's a triumph of visual futurism and an ornament to sci-fi cinema as well as to cinema in general, I resist it on some level.

It's an overwhelming, immersive experience, a total creation of a possible future so complete that you don't need exposition to know how we got from here to there (2019).

Stylistically, Blade Runner is the Citizen Kane of sci-fi movies.

Blade Runner, which does not look one bit dated, envelops us so completely in its off-kilter, near-future world.

The changes are minor, but the overall effect is a much cleaner, more logical, and more organically flowing movie.

Blade Runner has only gotten better with time. Do yourself a favor and pass over anything new in theaters and go for this old classic, it still has the power to dazzle and amaze.

This definitive print should be the last little push that "Blade Runner" needs to complete its 25-year journey from box office failure to cult favorite to full-blown classic.
