At age 69, Ridley Scott is finally satisfied with his most challenging film. He's still turning out movies at a furious pace — American Gangster, with Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe, is due in November — building on an extraordinary oeuvre that includes Alien, Thelma & Louise, Gladiator, and Black Hawk Down. But he seems ready to accept Blade Runner as his crowning achievement. In his northern English accent, he describes its genesis and lasting influence. And, inevitably, he returns to the darkness that pervades his view of the future — the shadows that shield Deckard from a reality that may be too disturbing to face.
Some MemeStreamers are probably interested in this interview.
If you take for granted for a moment that, let's say, Deckard is a Nexus 7, he probably has an unknown life span and therefore is starting to get awfully human.
i saw the original on it's cinema release, i sneaked in under-age
i used to get stoned and watch the film regularly at one point 20ish years ago and suspected Deckard was a replicant due to the gleam of gold seen in his eyes when he's out of focus at one point in his apartment ( a frequent signifier in the film for replicants ) with the 1992 director's cut i assumed he was Nexus 6 and didn't have the open life span mentioned in the voice over so to have Scott say (almost) he's Nexus 7 is fucking cool
thanks for the link 8-))))
