Blade Runner - le film
Blade Runner is a 1982 American neo-noir dystopian science fiction film directed by Ridley Scott and starring Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Sean Young, and Edward James Olmos. The screenplay, written by Hampton Fancher and David Peoples, is a modified film adaptation of the 1968 novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick. The film depicts a dystopian Los Angeles in November 2019, in which genetically engineered replicants, which are visually indistinguishable from adult humans, are manufactured by the powerful Tyrell Corporation as well as by other "mega-corporations" around the world. Blade Runner initially polarized critics: some were displeased with the pacing, while others enjoyed its thematic complexity. Seven versions of the film have been shown for various markets as a result of controversial changes made by film executives. Plot[edit] Deckard begins his investigation at the Tyrell Corporation to ensure that the test works on Nexus-6 models. Themes[edit]

Cliffhanger, traque au sommet (1993 Blade Runner: The City as Replicant — Science Fiction & the City The city in Blade Runner is, like most cities representing the future, synthetic. However, it is unlike most other cities in futuristic works, in that the city grew organically: it developed through time and the evolution of human desire, as opposed to being designed for a specific purpose, as in, for example, Zamyatin’s We. In We, the city is perfectly contained, and everything inside is transparent; the city in Blade Runner seems to never end, and everything inside is veiled. The aesthetic of the city is a decaying synthesis of various human cultures and empires. Nothing is authentic, and nothing is truly new or unique to the time and place. In Blade Runner, the city is a replicant. In the end, humanity does not survive in human development, but in the replicants: the rebel replicants however, strive to break out of their bondage to attain freedom and individuality, a fundamentally human urge.
