I do enjoy the BFI books. This one I originally bought and read for a class called Writing About Film. One of the films we studied in-depth was Blade Runner because it has been so widely written about. Since I just made my way through the 2007 Collector's Edition DVD release, I thought it was time to give this one another read.

Bukatman is very detailed in his research and analysis of Blade Runner, but he tends to meander on occasion. He goes off on tangents regarding all of science fiction and compares Blade Runner to other works such as Things To Come and Metropolis. While there is good reason for these comparisons, it feels like he relies a bit too much on these other films at points.

Still, a decent piece of scholarly writing on a great film, worth reading if you like in-depth critical analysis of films.
