Triple Bill: Do You Wanna live Forever?

blade runner 1

1982 was a helluva year for movie geeks: E.T, The Dark Crystal, Airplane II: The Sequel, Star Trek II The Wrath of Khan, to name a few. But there was a dark side to film output then, that wasn’t so readily and immediately taken to critical bosums – gritty growers. One of our favourite Vimeo discoveries, Clara Darko, has assembled a 1982 triple bill moody montage, scored to “Octavarium”, by Dream Theater. Blade Runner, Conan The Barbarian, and The Thing, each linked by a struggle to survive in a hostile world, each with a key, Nietzschean line:

I want more life, fucker!” (father, in the re-edit)” – Roy Batty, Blade Runner

What is best in life?” “To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women.”                  – Conan, Conan The Barbarian

Why don’t we just… wait here for a little while… see what happens?

– Macready, The Thing
