Since its release in 1982, Ridley Scott's "Blade Runner", based on Philip K. Dick's novel, "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep", has remained a cult classic through its depiction of a futuristic Los Angeles, its complex, enigmatic plot and its underlying questions about the nature of human identity. "The Blade Runner Experience: The Legacy of a Science Fiction Classic" examines the film in a broad context, examining its relationship to the original novel, the PC game, the series of sequels, and the many films influenced by its style and themes. It investigates "Blade Runner" online fandom and asks how the film's future city com-pares to the present-day Los Angeles; and it revisits the film to pose surprising new questions about its characters and their world.
