Blade Runner: The Director's Cut (1982)

Directed by Ridley Scott, Starring Harrison Ford

Scott shows us a bleak and visually stunning depiction of one of our possible futures, where genetically-engineered replicants (artificial people) escape to Earth and are hunted down by special policemen (blade runners). This director's cut is bleaker and more ambiguous than the original theatrical release. The film is based on the Philip K. Dick sci-fi story, "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?"
