It's arguably the point upon which the entirety of Ridley Scott's sci-fi magnum opus Blade Runner hinges: is Rick Deckard, the assassin played by a stony Harrison Ford, one of the very androids he sets out to destroy? The film poses all manner of questions about being and selfhood, and the answers a viewer takes away from the film depend almost entirely on the read of that central mystery. Ridley Scott has stated in no uncertain terms that Deckard was a replicant all along, but plenty of fans (including, at one point, Harrison Ford) have chosen to rule Deckard as human or instead accept the unknowability of it all.

“Hey guys, who thinks I’m a robot? Ridley? Denis?”
It’s been months since FX offered anything new on Tom Hardy’s upcoming limited series Taboo, but if may have been worth the wait. Get a fresh glimpse of good crazy in the eight-part miniseries venture between FX and the BBC, produced by Ridley Scott.
Based on the overwhelmingly positive reviews out of TIFF, Arrival is yet another stunning film from director Denis Villenueve, who has consistently impressed critics and audiences since crossing over into the mainstream with 2013’s Prisoners.
