In many ways, Blade Runner is one of the most accessible sci-fi movies of all time. Liberally adapting Philip K. Dick’s novel Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?, director Ridley Scott fashioned the futuristic thriller as the most technologically advanced of film noir. It’s the kind of detective story Humphrey Bogart used to make, with Harrison Ford playing a retired detective on a mission to apprehend a shitload of fugitives. And who doesn’t love a good, old-school crime saga?
In this vintage interview (courtesy of Eyes On Cinema) watch Ridley discuss his seminal work – from the film’s many undertones to the process of putting the project together.
