Aren't We All Just Replicants on the Inside?





"Aren't we all replicants now?" Giuliana Bruno, a professor of film and visual culture at Harvard University, asked at the panel, titled "The Future Is Now: Blade Runner at 25." In a world of rapid technological innovation that affects not only how we live but how we think and remember, "We're all suffering from 'accelerated decrepitude,'" she said, poised at obsolescence like the film's expiration-date humanoids.


In other words, we've got the posthuman blues.

And, no, I will not take your silly little Voight-Kampff test...
