Blade Runner (1982)

Blade Runner (44:46)

Blade Runner 3

The warmth and fun of recent Spielberg AFIers gives way to cold, futuristic sci-fi (and film noir) in this 104th edition of the T100P. Ridley Scott’s only AFI movie is Harrison Ford’s final one. They weren’t buddies after this experience, but not many collaborators were in love with Scott when this initially unsuccessful flick came out. Talk about staying power though. This is the epitome of influential. Get your Sparkplug Coffee and then get your ears on!
