    Seminal sci-fi film noir

    This film remains one of the most influential and worthwhile of all time. It works because it can be simply a detective/sci-fi film that one enjoys with the theater popcorn and walks away from. Or it is an incredible film noir of a dark time where of lawlessness and where big business are more powerful than government and stays with you through the decades. The climax scene with Harrison Ford and Rutger Hauer on the roof in the rain is one of the most poignant cinematic moments of all time.What does it mean to be human? I hated this film the first time I saw it when it first arrived on screens in the 1980s, but grew to see more in it with each successive visit to the theater. It remains in my top five films now, 20+ years later. I'm a not sure removing Deckard's voiceovers in the Director's cut was the best move. In the original they provided an important backdrop to the film. Great performances by Edward James Olmos, Ford, Hauer, et al are not lost. Watch it more than once and you will pick up missed nuances that enhance one's understanding of the film.

    Another Look

    I have taken another look at my past criticism of the Director’s cut. That fine-tuning improved and clarified the narrative. The added footage of the unicorn did the same. The two disc set was a great joy and the four disc set was well worth buying. I am tempted to write more, but the film deserves better than I can give it today. This is a great set to own. The film is a masterwork. The final cut is the best version. I think that the voice over can be fun to hear, but it adds nothing essential to the narration.
