The Nerdwriter Breaks Down the Importance of the Ridley Scott Cyberpunk Classic ‘Blade Runner’

Blade Runner is my favorite film. Maybe that says something about me. Though the film is beautiful, lyrical and profound objectively (if there is such a thing), I’ve always felt it reflected a personal longing in me, some absence its beauty, poetry and profundity embodied perfectly.
