PAUL M. SAMMON - author of
"Future Noir: The Making of Blade Runner"
Netrunner for Brmovie.com, July 2002.
Chapter 1 of Future Noir ends, "To answer those questions,
perhaps we should first pick up a Bible, and then turn to an old,
old line. One which opens the Gospel of St. John and will serve
as the proper introduction to Future Noir as well: 'In the beginning
was the Word...' " With such an introduction to a book which
some have described not just as the best book on Blade Runner, but
one of the best film books ever written, it is no surprise that
it has become known as the "BR Bible".
The author of Future Noir, Paul M. Sammon, chats with Netrunner
about Blade Runner, PKD, Scott, Future Noir and much more!
Note: The complete interview
is available to download
in Text or Word formats.
Reading Paul's extensive discourse should keep you busy for a while,
but once you get to the end, you'll probably want to read even more!
So here are a couple of places where you can:
Off-World - Read the "missing" Chapter VIII of Future
- Read Gary Willoughby's interview of Paul in 2000.
You want to read more? Well you do have your own copy of Future
Noir don't you? Available at all good book stores.
Already have the book? STILL not enough? Well maybe we will eventually
get a new, expanded release with all the information that couldn't
be prised into the first edition, plus updates in the continuing
saga of Blade Runner, including the production of the Blade Runner
Special Edition DVD?
