Blade Runner

Various info about the film
.  Only watch the final director's cut if you want to be spared the awful commercial ending and voice-over imposed on the Scott's film after a first negative public screening. There are also a few more hints in this version as to a 'missing' Replicant. Also, it is slightly less violent than the previous international cut, a few particularly unbearable (and unnecessary) shots have been cut out. Needless to warn young or sensitive people that it still contains strong violence and remains an R-rated film anyway in all versions.
.  Here is a thought for Daryl Hannah, who did break her arm against that window car and was injured.
.  The three origami left by the enigmatic Gaff throughout the film are clues to Deckard's mind. I am not quite sure about the first one, which seems to be a chicken, maybe suggesting Deckard is afraid to accept the mission. The second one is a little stick man with an erection, probably to show (not very subtly) Deckard that he knows he is attracted to Rachael. It is also of course an attempt to provocate him, something he seems to thoroughly enjoy (pushes him while he is eating, tends to smile slyly at him, though at the end of the film, he seems to feel some sympathy for him). So Gaff knows Deckard's fears, desires and also his dreams, since the last origami left on his frontdoor is a unicorn and Deckard dreamt of a unicorn earlier on. spoiler
.  The love scene involving Deckard was described on the screenplay as a sweet and romantic moment but Harrison Ford chose to play it in a very rough macho detestable way. Consequently, this sequence was nicknamed the "rape scene" by the crew, the actress was not exceedingly happy with the bruises and distress she suffered because of him (see her interview in the Washington Post, August 14th, 1982)tand I completely agree with her that it feels a lot like domestic violence so it wins here on my site the award for most unromantic and mysoginist love scene. Anyway, though quite unpleasant, this is a fitting interpretation. After all, Deckard is a worn-out cold cynical detective whose actions are not always very acceptable and who has become insensitive and brutal, mainly because he has been trained to do other people's dirty job. It would simply have been out of character for Deckard to suddenly turn into a nice sweet prince charming. Similarly, the actor disliked the film and complained he had nothing to do, but his complete failure to take an interest in the whole project does turn out quite well since his character is supposed to be feeling that way too.
.  There is an incredible amount of frequent huge brands advertisements in Blade Runner, including TDK, Coca-Cola, Atari and Budweiser. Real annoying.
.  If you want to know more about the film, there is a great very interesting and complete book you may be interested to know about, intitled Futur Noir: The Making of Blade Runner by Paul M. Sammon.
