Gorgeous, tense, and nervously existentialist. Ridley Scott's masterpiece more than holds up. It's not shy about its influences in noir, sci fi, and space opera, but nothing in memory is as effortless at taking bits and pieces from other media and making something so wholly new. Every character is memorable and important, every shot is carefully thought out, every piece of dialogue feels natural, even from people who inhabit a world that doesn't exist. The set pieces instill a sense of enclosure, as everything feels cramped and unwelcome despite the gargantuan scale of the city. In short, this shit slaps, it's really cool, and I'm pumped to see the sequel.
