"Go F–k Yourself”: Ridley Scott Reflects On Blade Runner Criticism 41 Years Later

Blade Runner director Ridley Scott candidly reflects on the negative feedback he received regarding his science-fiction classic. Loosely based on Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, Scott's seminal 1982 film follows Harrison Ford's blade runner, Rick Deckard, as he embarks on a mission to terminate four replicants. The movie wasn't a big box office hit and nor did it strike a chord with critics upon its release, but it's now widely considered a science-fiction masterpiece.
