    ★★★★

    as haunting as it was the first time. one of Tarkovsky’s less straightforwardly ‘philosophical’ films, but just as rich and meditative

    ★★★★

    I’d rate it 4.25 stars if I could: it’s a wonderful period piece centred around a very sweet romance. A combination of Boogie Nights and Punch Drunk Love, but charming and relaxing rather than anxiety inducing.


    Anderson is a master at colour and lighting, while Haim and Hoffman are so charming and good!

    I’ve always enjoyed Blade Runner since it was / is my father’s favourite film. When I was 12 we watched it together as he had decided it was time I was old enough to watch a “mature” film. Today was the first time I’ve seen it in several years though, and it’s with relatively fresh eyes that I say it’s a perfect film.

    To production design, the costumes, the Caravaggio-esque use of light, the iconic soundtrack from Vangelis, the development of the replicants, just a few of the things which make it stand out. So good.
