BLADE RUNNER—THE DIRECTOR'S CUT. Ridley Scott, dir. USA: Warner (et al.), (1982) / 1991 ([c]), 1992 (release). 117 min.

A separately copyrighted version of the film, deleting the voice-over narration and the final escape sequence ending the 1982 version, and adding "the expunged unicorn scene which suggests that Deckard is a replicant" (quoting Dennis K. Fischer, Cinefantastique 22.5 [April 1992]: 60). The unicorn scene is very brief, and the suggestion of Deckard's being a replicant is very subtle.

BLADE RUNNER: THE FINAL CUT (1982/2007) is reviewed by Joseph Francavilla, SFRA Review #283 (Winter 2008): pp.18-19.[1] See for apparatus with this late iteration of BLADE RUNNER (also praise for its technical virtues in terms of quality of sight and sound).
