The tortured tale of finding the most 'authentic' version of this '80s
classic seems almost like a mirror of the story itself. Clones upon
clones. Even the 'Director's Cut', it seems, was not the last word.
Thankfully, Blade Runner The Final Cut, has more than just resounding
conviction. The director's imprimatur does appear in both in his
introduction and the three-and-a-half hour documentary made by a third
party. But, more importantly, it is a cogently convincing balancing act
which encapsulates the best nuances of its themes state control, the
meaning of identity, and the essence of humanity itself.
Digitally restored and re-mastered, the set incorporates new footage
and special effects, re-mastered sound, an introduction by Ridley Scott
(who says he's finally happy with this version phew!), three
filmmaker commentaries including Scott's, and the 'definitive'
documentary that includes outtakes, deleted scenes, new interviews,
screen-tests and an intelligent examination of the movie's creation and
DVD 'commentaries' have cynically been described as entertainingly
endless rambling. This set is no exception, and the trivia they include
often duplicates the professionally produced study in the accompanying
documentary. Choice of style, if you like.
The documentary is well above standard offerings of its kind. In
analysing the film from many angles (including pre-production, art
department, casting and scripting, controversies over the story and
versions, and its chequered history) it lets you realise the enormity
of the task in creating an iconic futuristic urban film-noir world in
the days before CGI. Another interesting irony for a movie that
champions reality over the human/replicant abyss. Years later of
course, the interest in the 'real' is being revived, from Tarantino's
'reality stunts' in Deathproof, to Carlos Reygadas' preference for
authenticity over CGI in Silent Light.
Major disagreements on set are not skimmed over even one where the
crew take to wearing rebellious t-shirts in defiance of Ridley Scott's
bossiness, and the measures he takes to handle the situation. Profound
gulfs separating approaches of various scriptwriters are discussed in a
mature and enlightening fashion. Perhaps enough time has passed to put
passions into perspective. David Peoples and Hampton Fancher explain
their writing methods and we can appreciate how the practicality of the
former, balanced the zealous vision of the latter. The documentary
allows a viewer not involved with the industry to appreciate the
complexity of talents in various roles.
Purists may say that a film such as Blade Runner should only be
appreciated on the big screen. I am firmly in that camp with most films
made for cinematic release. But several things argue for the purchase
of this set.
Firstly, if you can watch it on Blu-Ray and on a suitably large wide
screen, the amount of visual and aural detail will blow you away. If
you are new to Blu-Ray, you could do much worse than make this your
virgin purchase. Secondly, Blu-Ray can handle a vast amount of data
even more than HD. You get enough quality viewing on this set to hold
your attention for several evenings. Thirdly, you can assuage your
cinephile conscience by noting that the film's cult following and place
in history was largely assured through small screen viewing. Tip:
switch the English subtitles on as you listen to the commentaries. And
even the subtitles are well done, intelligently placed, moving to the
top of the screen when they might otherwise obscure an important
But if your curiosity needs to review the now 'retired' versions,
there's also a 5-disk (collectors')Final Cut. Just don't make any
