Director Ridley Scott’s acknowledged masterpiece, BLADE RUNNER is also one of the most influential films of the past 30 years, a dazzling fusion of retro-noir and future paranoia, set in a decaying, rain-drenched Los Angeles dominated by Mayan pyramids of unimaginable wealth. Harrison Ford stars as the government-sanctioned killer who falls in love with gorgeous, enigmatic Sean Young, while trying to eliminate Rutger Hauer and his rogue band of genetically engineered replicants.
