Book Description: This book of essays looks at the multitude of texts and influences which converge in Ridley Scott's film Blade Runner, especially the film's relationship to its source novel, Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? The film's implications as a thought experiment provide a starting point for important thinking about the moral issues implicit in a hypertechnological society. Yet its importance in the history of science fiction and science fiction film rests equally on it mythically and psychologically resonant creation of compelling characters and an exciting story within a credible science fiction setting. These essays consider political, moral and technological issues raised by the film, as well as literary, filmic, technical and aesthetic questions. Contributors discuss the film's psychological and mythic patterns, important political issues and the roots of the film in Paradise Lost, Frankenstein, detective fiction, and previous science fiction cinema.

Book Description: Since its release in 1982, Ridley Scott's Blade Runner, based on Philip K. Dick's novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, has remained a cult classic through its depiction of a futuristic Los Angeles; its complex, enigmatic plot; and its underlying questions about the nature of human identity. The Blade Runner Experience: The Legacy of a Science Fiction Classic examines the film in a broad context, examining its relationship to the original novel, the PC game, the series of sequels, and the many films influenced by its style and themes. It investigates Blade Runner online fandom and asks how the film's future city compares to the present-day Los Angeles, and it revisits the film to pose surprising new questions about its characters and their world.

Book Description: Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2013 im Fachbereich Medien / Kommunikation - Film und Fernsehen, Note: 1,3, Universität zu Köln, Veranstaltung: Conditio Humana, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Eine Theorie, die sich zur Untersuchung des Films Blade Runner anbietet, ist die von Jacques Lacan entwickelte Theorie des Spiegelstadiums. Die beiden Protagonisten des Films Deckard und Roy sind nicht nur Repräsentanten der im Film unterteilten Gruppen (Replikanten, Nicht-Replikanten), sondern weisen im Laufe des Films eine Entwicklung auf, die naheliegt, dass die beiden eine miteinander verflochtene Abhängigkeitsbeziehung haben. Der Anblick des jeweils anderen bündelt in beiden Figuren Träume und Ängste und sie bilden ein untrennbares Geflecht. Diese Arbeit untersucht nun die Frage danach, wie diese beiden Figuren das Bild des Lacanschen Spiegelstadiums abbilden. Bilden Replikant und Blade Runner durch die gegenseitige Auffüllung der Mängel des anderen das „Ideal-Ich“?

Book Description: This critical study traces the common origins of film noir and science fiction films, identifying the many instances in which the two have merged to form a distinctive subgenre known as Tech-Noir. From the German Expressionist cinema of the late 1920s to the present-day cyberpunk movement, the book examines more than 100 films in which the common noir elements of crime, mystery, surrealism, and human perversity intersect with the high technology of science fiction. The author also details the hybrid subgenre's considerable influences on contemporary music, fashion, and culture.

Book Description: The interdisciplinary study of theology and film requires a responsible engagement on the part of religious studies experts, biblical scholars and theologians, with film studies. Cinema Divinite first of all sets out various critical approaches to the study of film and theology such as formalism, expressionism, realism, textual analysis, contextual analysis, postmodern eclecticism, narrative criticism and cultural studies. The early chapters also look at the major concepts in films studies such as cinema spectatorship and the nature and application of film theory to theology.
