I don’t really have much text to add to this. As you may have already inferred, I love this movie and was totally enchanted by the ending with the famous lines,
“I’ve… seen things you people wouldn’t believe… [laughs] Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those… moments… will be lost in time, like [coughs] tears… in… rain. Time… to die…”
And who doesn’t love Bladerunner… and that ending?
In this short interview, Rutger Hauer revisits that moment 30 years later, acknowledging he saw the future, and that half of Ray’s character, especially as he faces certain death, was brought to life by his own interpretation, spirit and soul.
We love you Rutger Hauer and Ridley Scott for creating this epic, and ironically immortal, cinematic moment.
