Blade Runner

Blade Runner ★★★★★

If I for some reason would get to project a film onto a wall like a background-mood, it would be Blade Runner (like Kanye did with the sequel). Not because the story is bad (even if I know it in and out by now, especially considering how pleasant its noir-structure flows) but because I just love living in this film. The mix between a smoky, muffled film-noir aura and dirty sci-fi feels like the most natural thing ever here. Equally astonishing out in the vast cityscapes as inside the hazy, dark buildings. Vangelis’ score, among the greatest musical pieces ever, is the perfect companion to create a landscape to completely be surrounded by.

Again, this isn’t to say that Blade Runner is shallow; the intricate plotting is still so fascinating in its slow unraveling and Harrison Ford’s dedication in this untangling is completely captivating. Teary-eyed by the sheer comfort in a favorite film, I’m continuously floored by how overwhelmingly great this is with each viewing.
