Most Bizarre Hollywood Dystopias
Blade Runner 1982
Blade Runners dystopia isnt necessarily the main thrust of the film, serving more as a murky backdrop for the story being told, but theres no denying that the films world is not one that is appealing.The administering of emotional examinations to determine the replicants from the humans is the most troubling element of the film. None of the replicants are particularly robotic, and all display a desire to live, to find happiness. This exploration of what it means to be a person is an important theme, and the arbitrary distinctions that are made should be disturbing.
