Crazed 20-Minute Cut-Up Re-Edit of “Blade Runner” #cyberpunk
I love this “radical edit” of Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner where the creator, filmmaker Leon Chase, has mixed in scenes of the principle actors from other films and characters from additional films that the actors also appeared in (or are associated with).
In this bizarre re-imagining of the film, Gene Hackman (who was in The Conversation, alongside Harrison Ford), John Belushi (from The Blues Brothers, which co-starred Carrie Fisher, who co-starred with Ford in Star Wars), and Steve Martin (from The Jerk, which also starred M. Emmet Walsh, Deckard’s boss in Blade Runner), are here recast as the Replicants. Oh, and also Greedo from Star Wars.
One especially fun thing about this re-edit is that it’s a cinematic cut-up and the Scott film title Blade Runner was taken from a William Burroughs book of the same name (which bears no relationship to the film). And, of course, Burroughs is known for the Burroughsian text cut-up technique. Holy looping referentiality, Batman!
