A futuristic, industrial skyline reflected in a human (?) eye, the opening scene from “Blade Runner” (1982). Supported by the heavy, synthetic reverb of the iconic Vangelis musical score, the eye symbolically references divine power (Christian Eye of Providence, Eye of Odin, etc.) The scene is a perfect overture for one of the movie’s themes: What if humans scientifically created life? 10 out of 10 - my highest recommendation.
My fave John Boorman movie is “Excalibur” (1981). It features great visual storytelling (e.g., Arthur defeats a shiny-armored Lancelot - in the next scene, all of Arthur’s knights are wearing shiny armor). Ultra-ambitious to shoot this epic saga as one movie, though Boorman succeeds. The performances (Nigel Terry, Helen Mirren, Patrick Stewart, Nicol Williamson (“A dream to some. A NIGHTMARE TO OTHERS!”) are strange, yet excellent, adding to the surreal atmosphere. Superb classical music licensing. 9 out of 10 - highly recommended.
