Give me a hardcopy right there.

For some reason, the Bladerunner soundtrack never fails to give me the chills; it's almost unbelievable that it wasn't released for ten years (it came out in conjunction with the Director's Cut in 1993, back when the media conglomerates weren't so good at the multiple medium thing, and were less... well, "conglomerated"). There is something about Vangelis' music together with the pieces of dialogue and the ambient sounds that go with it that puts you immediately there. No images required. Not even closing your eyes. Just listening.

So good it hurts.

I should watch the movie again one of these days. It's been a while since the last time (months even!) :-)

-Do you like our owl?

-It's artificial?

-Of course it is.

-Must be expensive.

-Very.

The undertones. The atmosphere. The depth of the story in just a few lines. Must... resist...
