Blade Runner

West Hollywood: The Ladd Company, 1982. Vintage borderless photograph from the 1982 film. French "Still Photo" label on verso.

Based on the 1968 novel, "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" by Philip K. Dick. Like Stanley Kubrick's "2001" in 1968, and building on the claustrophobic, dystopian vision director Ridley Scott had already developed in "Alien" (1979), "Blade Runner" set a standard for science fiction cinema that resulted an irrevocable influence on the genre. The bar was raised not just with regard to visual style, but with the invocation of socio-political themes that had prior to that time only existed in science fiction literature.

10 x 8 inches. Very Good plus, light edgewear and creasing.
