"Blade Runner": In Depth Look At The "Love" Scene With Rachael And Deckard.

596 words - 2 pages

In Ridley Scott’s 1982 film “Blade Runner”, a dark, controlled universe set on attaining the unreachable goal of Utopia is presented to us. In their quest for this utopian society, the supposed rulers of the land have created android-like replicas, eradicating emotion within them so as to minimise the risks they present. However, as scientific and mechanical achievements advance, and indeed the realisation of the destruction of this very world because of its control become clear, a new league of replicants are created: nexus 6. These creations have digitally implanted memories which in turn allow them to feel emotion, and indeed feel “more human”. One such a replicant is Rachael, a prototype build of a beautiful young girl. The emotion attribute implanted in her is so strong that it takes the now retired Blade Runner Rick Deckard over one hundred interrogatory questions before he can say for certain that Rachael is a replicant (when the usual amount of questions would only be around twenty).In such a controlled and organised society, everything does indeed seem extremely run-down, and essentially a dystopia, despite the advancements of technology. Therefore a love, especially the one which slowly blossoms between Rachael and Deckard contrasts heavily with the environment. That is the beauty of this love – where Deckard is, by way of his occupation, meant to “murder” Rachael, or as the state like to refer to it, “retire”, instead he in return falls in love with Rachael. This poses us, as Rachael and Deckard passionately embrace, what makes us human, what defines our sense of being. This point is arguable, but undoubtedly, the absence of emotion is what distinguishes humans from their “better” replications.When we first meet...
