For any fans that might be interested in this all-time sci-fi classic they are releasing an updated version that is cleaned up and has quite a few missing and deleted scenes. Farmer was nuts- he was committed a number of times in his life. He also wrote, um, was it vanilla sky and thru a scanner darkly? Was he nuts cuz he saw the futture, or did his insanity influenece his vision of the future? Either way and regardless, his books and the movies based upon them are absolutely fabulous. Bladerunner being one of the best.
