Tears In Rain, my FREE film theory dissection of Blade Runner, is now available


It’s available here to read in PDF (for now).

UPDATE: Now in Kindle and ePub editions.

30 years ago Ridley Scott changed the world. I genuinely believe Blade Runner was a watershed moment in cinema history and I have absolutely no experience in dissecting and theorizing as to why it is so monumentally powerful. All I can do is produce a 130-page fanwork, a labour of love, in an effort to express exactly why Blade Runner has twisted me into the person I am today.

I embarked on this project over two years ago. I’ve grown substantially as a writer and a journalist with this little project being a full display of my talent. I can talk about how I am horrible with my grammar, blasphemous with my spelling and poor with my sentence structure but I believe Tears to be the best work I have ever produced. It was all for Blade Runner and, more importantly, for the Blade Runner fans.

I do hope you enjoy my interpretations, my theories and dissections of context within Blade Runner. It was both a torture and a pleasure to produce and you can expect Blade Runner Week to kick off tonight with a full-on Review of the picture.

  1. Just came here from Aint It Cool news. Downloaded your book and am digging right in. Yet, I have to stop and let you know about a significant error in the first paragraph. The Cold War (1945 – 1991) was not over when Blade Runner (1982) was released. Makes me a little afraid to continue reading. Just a heads-up.

  2. Aside from those weaker elements that you listed, this is an astounding read for someone of your age. As a recent college graduate who has had to write essays constantly, I know how difficult it is to maintain creative momentum when writing, and your passion for the material completely makes up for any other shortcomings. Keep up the good work!
