Reply Iain July 20, 2011 Also try the book Instant Light about Tarkovsky’s Polaroids and the Impossible Project who still make the now obsolete film. Reply Lulu July 22, 2011 God, I love Harrison Ford and especially Rutger Hauer! Such a underrated actor… Reply von August 20, 2011 quite touching…the first two… Reply Chris September 9, 2011 I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time… like tears in rain… Time to die.

Reply La'son September 26, 2011 Look how lovely Sean Young was! What a great film….one of my favorites. Thanks for sharing. Reply JT January 26, 2012 Sean Young is still near the top of my “Women I Love” list. Reply Lise February 1, 2012 I LOVE Sean Young’s hair in that film Reply Carlos July 13, 2012 Is that Philip K.

Book recommendation – Future Noir: The Making of Blade Runner by Paul Sammon – an excellent read. Reply Nomad October 26, 2012 Great pics – still have a crush on Rachel after all these years! So, what’s the deal with the picture where Sean Young is blond and blue-eyed??? Did they consider having another replicant who looked like Rachel (as in Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep) and do test shots? Reply Leannan December 30, 2012 I think it’s a picture of Joanna Cassidy Reply Aitchwood December 28, 2012 Sean Young had that luminescent skin–beautiful…… Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
