Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Oct 28th at 5:00 pm for Blade Runner – Final Cut at the AMC Loews Uptown 1 . Look for Brian wearing an orange “Life Is Good” hat in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
Director Ridley’s Scotts ultimate release of his landmark 1982 “future noir” film. On the off chance you’ve never seen the movie:
The film depicts a dystopian Los Angeles in November 2019 in which genetically manufactured beings called replicantsvisually indistinguishable from adult humansare used for dangerous and degrading work in Earth’s “off-world colonies”. Following a small replicant uprising, replicants become illegal on Earth; and specialist police units called “blade runners” are trained to hunt down and “retire” (kill) escaped replicants on Earth. The plot focuses on a brutal and cunning group of replicants hiding in Los Angeles and a semi-retired blade runner, Rick Deckard, who reluctantly agrees to take on one more assignment.
