Quotes

[on Harrison Ford's performance]
Rutger Hauer: His role didn't seem to fit him, or he couldn't make it fit. I know that that was going on and I don't know why but if he would have been stronger, I would of not been so shiny, y'know.

Despite a Few Neat Insights, This Making-Of Documentary Feels Thin
11 September 2011 | by drqshadow-reviewsSee all my reviews

Having read Paul Sammon's laboriously-researched novel "Future Noir" from cover to cover, I didn't find a lot of fresh insight in this semi-modern rumination on Ridley Scott's rainy portrait of a gloomy future culture. Having said that, it's nice to hear the various words and stories straight from each horse's mouth, rather than coldly reprinted, oral history style, on a long page. Having shunned the project since almost the moment it was released, it's no surprise to see Harrison Ford and Sean Young conspicuously absent from the list of interviewees, though an appearance from either would have made this a much more interesting piece. The few concept sketches and effect demos the doc's producers manage to dig up are extremely interesting, but they're too few and far between for this to hold the interest of non-hardcores.
