Rick Deckard's Los Angeles



The 1982 Ridley Scott classic Blade Runner had everything going for it, including a great story based loosely on Philip Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, a superior cast headed by Harrison Ford, and fabulous design by Lawrence G. Paull and David Snyder, based on sketches by conceptual artist Syd Mead. This view of Los Angeles circa 2062 perfectly reflects the film's vision of a well-lit, technologically advanced, yet decayed future.
