My First golden Movie amoung all Rutger Hauer movies was
I was trying to kill time and a friend of mine told me :--
" Hey ;why don't you go to the Cinema,
there is a great science movie
to see with Harrison Ford!"
Well;at that time (i was young...) my feelings about Science Fiction
were not good.
I was in the
mood of intelectual directors like Josef Von Sternberg ....
Anyway;i whent into the movies place and i thougth to myself
didn't wanted to see any of that kind, when suddenly i saw one of the
Roy Batty pics...
It was like a boom.
When i started seeing Blade Runner the movie was in the middle and i
must say,when the end came i
was like a someone who had a vision of
I spent all the rest of my day watching that beauty and when i
came home was more than midnight!.
I saw it 3 times in that day.
Blade Runner was much more than a movie.
It 's was
a revelation .
It remains like an adventure that can change all our life.
Yes;i belive that is the most important movie
At least to me.
And Rutger Hauer is my Heart actor since that day, for i always feel
the same i did
that day each time i see him working!.
Condemned not to live and not to return the Earth, the
androids of the Blade Runner
deeply resembles like those who -since the expulsion of the Paradise, dreamed with
the reintegration as Adam and Eva when being taken by the Arcanjo.
The electric sheep of Phliph K. Dick, assumes in Ridley
Scott an almost angelic nature in the figure of Roy Batty, the android that looks for a new conscience.
Roy Batty is the
one that discovers more quickly that the element photograph memory is after all the biggest lie of all its existence.
The second, the illusion of permanence.
He knows everything regarding himself and he knows
how to assume his social impossibility. He does not have nothing backward or in front of him but
the love for his beloved and the knowledge of his conviction the death. When assuming the control on
his life, risking it to go to the meeting with his creators he assumes one of the most beautiful qualities
of human beings; the capacity to fight for the freedom.
Being able to choose to live the time that remained
in the company of his lover, he chose the risk to face the creator of the creators, to lose the life that remained
This choice makes him as somebody who
deserves to live, somebody who left all those dark rooms, of the characteristic fears that belongs to
human flocks that trys to gain a notion of life in the immense cathedrals of consumption to hide their terrors
Roy Batty assumes the control of his own destinaty.
The risk as contrary of fear is a freedom symbol -
“You live isn´t an easy thing, hey…“ .
He is not part of flocks anymore and Batty changes himself into the traveller searching for
reply to his questions
Will the electric sheep have dreams? …
Orson Wells said that the dream is the only
important thing.Our Android became theat one that knows that he is going to die and safes Deckard, the one that always
knew that only would survive to kill.
When choosing to save him ,Roy Batty assumes a spiritual rise of the most extreme importance.The
capacity to accept the own death in the hope of the continuity.
He saves Deckard passing his memories in order of not to be forgotten -
“I´ve seen things you people wouldn´t believe…”
He gives his memories and dies.
And Deckard? Will he be only another electric dream of Roy Batty? …
Or we can after
all save eachothers? …
