78. Blade Runner (1982)
directed by Ridley Scott
Seldom do we see a science fiction film that so beautifully and completely creates such a soulless future. Even less often does that vision of the future contain an undeniably human core. In Blade Runner, Ridley Scott made a quintessential sci fi film. We find a future that is plausibly horrible (or is that horribly plausible?) where its inhabitants seem to be on a constant auto pilot. No happiness, no joy, no hope. All the more fascinating when we find that the only people who seem to value human life aren’t people at all.
