Blade Runner does successfully attempt to reflect the future of the world. The environment is shit, the majority of people look like they sleep in a dumpster, third world immigrants flood the streets, and people like Harrison Ford are cops. This is a much scarier world than any apocalyptic film George A. Romero would make. The future looks bleak for man.
Over the years Blade Runner has become more and more recognized as a masterpiece. I would agree with this to some extent. I find myself going back to it at least once a year. Its beautiful film to watch. I just wouldn’t get too wrapped up in trying to analyze it for a deeper meaning. Hollywood isn’t interested.
