I’ve Seen Things: Blade Runner by John Alvin
Gorgeous estate-signed Blade Runner artwork from John Alvin.
Blade Runner, released in 1982 is Ridley Scott's sci-fi film noir set in dystopian Los Angeles, November 2019. Retired police officer Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) is detained at a noodle bar by officer Gaff (Edward James Olmos). His former supervisor, Bryant (M. Emmet Walsh), tells him that several "replicants"—biologically engineered humanoids who serve as soldiers and slaves in off-world colonies—have escaped, and have come to Earth illegally. As a "blade runner" while active, Deckard's job was to track down replicants on Earth and "retire" them. He must pursue and try to terminate four replicants who stole a ship in space and have returned to Earth to find their creator.
