As most of you probably heard by now, 'Blade Runner' director Ridley Scott recently participated in a BBC documentary on the film, during which he also finally settled one issue that BR fans have been debating for years - Scott finally confirmed that Deckard was a replicant. Am I the only one who wishes he hadn't said that?
After the Director's Cut and the insertion of the unicorn scene, to me at least it was pretty clear that Deckard was in fact a replicant, but when watching the film there were always a few people who weren't as convinced, and those debates were one of the reasons for rewatching the film so many times. Though I have now finally won these debates, I'll also miss them - Scott really should have preserved the mystery.
