From Tysto commentaries:
Join the Doctor fromand me as we watch one of the most influential film noir movies of all time. Thrill to the dark, rainy setting! Gasp at the rumpled trenchcoats! Stand in awe of the game of 20 questions! We dissect the film as sci-fi as well as film noir. We attempt to determine what “blades” are being “run”.
We compare the film to other sci-fi movies, other Ridley Scott movies, and other Philip K Dick stories. And we discuss the possibility of Deckard being a replicant—which he DEFINITELY IS NOT BECAUSE THAT WOULD BE STUPID, RIDLEY SCOTT.
NEW: Intro music!
From Speakeasy Podcast:
and the Dr. fire up the spinner, practice their origami and take on a bunch of skin jobs as they discuss Blade Runner. Possibly one of the best films ever made despite on-set production problems and the title being stolen from a book about smuggling medical instruments we take a peek into what Los Angeles will look like in 2019!
