Scott's solid gold arsehole status + his responsibility for the most tasteless + execrated aspects of the movie are pretty much laid bare; nice details about the art direction + Hauer's vital contribution made it good for us.
A great documentary that adds even more enjoyment to the actual film itself. See for your self why Ridley Scott is one of the great directors of our time, and how a tragic personal event helped pick... Read more up this project after he initially turned it down.
The description above makes it sound like a tedious, blow-by-blow account of the making of this classic masterpiece. In fact it's anything but -- pacey, exciting, expertly edited, it strikes a model... Read more balance between general interest and fan obsessiveness. Great stuff!
A lot of information here adds to the enjoyment of seeing the original ground breaking movie. Unsurpassed movie direction.
Blade Runner is one of my favourite films. I hadn't realised that it was so difficult to make!! It makes Ridley Scott's achievement all the greater.
There are no "spoilers" in this documentary... Read more. It won't knock any pet theories you may have about the storyline ... but it's a gold mine of information and anecdotes. All the main characters (now so much older!) interview well and, whilst not pulling their punches, gives us the human side of what was [apparently] a very gruelling film to make. The main story - quite rightly - is told by Ridley himself.
Just of of how much of the film took place at night, in the rain, and with smioke (effects) ... now imagine what it must have been like for the actors and crew!
If you're a Blade Runner fan - don't miss this.
