Rutger Hauer has passed away aged 75.
Without doubt this scene from Blade Runner is one of the most memorable in cinema history. Rutger Hauer helped to create Roy Batty’s death soliloquy.
“I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain..."
The irony is that Rutger Hauer's unforgettable performance has trapped him in the amber of that cinematic moment. RIP.
