What the hell is Blade Runner all about?

Blade Runner (1982) is unquestionably the seminal SF film of its generation. From the stunning visuals to the bang-on performances, to the casual effects, to the enigmatic symbolism, it is basically the magical heaven of all Noir. It was like every broody existental detective film based on a book by Hammett, Chandler, and the rest had been a mere precursor, and Blade Runner was the culmination of the entire genre. It is rightfully an unquestioned classic.

 

What the hell is it all about, though?

My sixteen-year-old son just self-published his first full-length novel, called "After Conquest."

Despite his youth, everyone who's read the manuscript thus far has really, really liked it. He's got a style that's very different (And probably more accessible) than mine. The general consensus is that it's a really good book. Best of all, this is YA fiction, so it's clean. No bad language or sex or gore or what have you. (Unlike my books)
