It is November 2019. This is when the classic 1982 film Blade Runner takes place.
This is the time that director Ridley Scott had envisaged in which law enforcement officers would be flying through dark and rainy Los Angeles in vehicles called “spinners”. It is now that we would send artificial human beings to do our dirty work in off-world colonies, and if they dared set foot on our filthy home planet, they would be summarily “retired”. Passers-by would barely budge when someone is shot in a crowded street.
I saw Blade Runner when it first came to the big screen in 1982, and during at least one more screening thereafter. I had a copy on VHS (possibly a “TV Broadcast” version with less nudity), and I have the “Director’s Cut” on DVD.
Blade Runner left a lasting impression.
