Book Image Not Available
Overview
Four critical essays on the 1982 Ridley Scott film "Blade Runner."
Description
In four critical essays, Hope Anderson desconstructs the production design, classical allusions, literary source, and Japanese cultural influences in the 1982 Ridley Scott film "Blade Runner," providing new insights into what is regarded by many as the greatest science fiction film of all time. Among the topics discussed are downtown Los Angeles and its architecture, the influence of Greek tragedy on the character Roy Batty, the meaning of Japanese cultural elements, and a comparison between the film and "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" the Philip K. Dick novel on which it is based.
