One of my favourite movies of all-time is Ridley Scott’s 1982 dystopian sci-fi masterpiece, Blade Runner, based on Phillp K. Dick‘s novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? Apart from its revolutionary art direction and skillful melding of the film noir and science fiction traditions into something entirely seemless and original, Vangelis’ score is also revolutionary, and essential to the film. To me, this is the mark of a great soundtrack, that the sounds in the film help to make the world depicted in it that much more believable.
P.S – Deckard is not a replicant. I don’t care what the director says!
