I enjoy this film more and more with each rewatch but I've yet to get to the point where I can see it as an all time classic.
I mean Ridley Scott himself couldn't find a version that he could truly settle on until the 7th time of asking.
I was not really a big Blade Runner fan until the Final Cut, even with that it's still a flawed film that feels incomplete.
This feels fairly complete and at close to 3 hours long I am glad Denis didn't feel the need to go any longer.
I'm a sucker for dystopias, neon and nipples and this film delivers on all 3 counts.
"Real Hero" by College played over the final minutes in my head.
I'd have probably enjoyed this a lot more if I hadn't seen the iconic ending scene before but this is a 50 year old movie so I probably should have gotten to it sooner.
The attention to detail and character building is wonderful and the paranoia inducing music just adds to it all. It's a beautiful looking film and Mia Farrow gives a performance of a lifetime.
If you ever wanted to see Linda Blair & David Hasselhoff running around in slo mo whilst smoke machines fill the air then this is the film for you.
If you didn't then it's probably worth avoiding.
It tries very hard to channel some of the Italian horror vibes with abstract visuals and atmospherics over plot. There's a…
A fun horror anthology that is rather tame by today's standards but still tells very creepy stories without being straight up scary.
My personal favourite was the Mirror with the Dummy also being very enjoyable.
Not as smart as it thinks it is.
Also Tony switches his accent from Welsh to Irish and I'm not even sure if that was on purpose?!?!
Gosling is great but he doesn't really have a lot to work with.
It's entertaining but also frustrating in equal measures, so many unanswered questions.
