Ich habe mir das Buch gekauft, da ich auf einschlägigen Fansites des öfteren über
Zitate aus "Future Noir" gestolpert bin - und ich kann jetzt verstehen, warum es so hoch geschätzt wird.
Dieses über 400seitige Mammutwerk strotzt nur so an Details
über den Schöpfungsprozess und den Werdegang dieses Kultfilms.
Der Autor Paul M. Sammon ist nach eigenen Aussagen
ein Besessener, und das merkt man beim Schmökern.
Dies ist kein Buch für Fans - sondern ein Buch das von
einem Fan für Fans geschrieben wurde.
Sämtliche kreativen Köpfe die an diesem Werk beteiligt waren
wurden von Sammon interviewt, der von Anfang bis Ende als
Filmjournalist am Set anwesend war.
Manche Szenen werden Einstellung für Einstellung analysiert.
Music, Special Effects, Workprint, Orginalversion, Directors
Cut, Buch, Design, Drehbuchentwicklung und vieles mehr
wird in eigenen Kapiteln ausführlichst behandelt.
Was will der Moviefan mehr?
Schade ist einzig das es noch keine deutsche Übersetzung gibt,
den leider sind etliche Fachausdrücke nicht ohne weiteres zu
verstehen.

Nicht viele Filme, die an den Kinokassen so versagt haben, werden im Nachhinein aufgrund ihrer visionären Inhalte zu Kultfilmen. Und noch viel weniger Filme haben das Glück, dass ein Autor sich so umfassend mit der Idee, Entstehung, Produktion des Werkes auseinandersetzt. In diesem Buch, das getrost als Standardwerk zum Bladerunner-Kult verstanden werden darf, kommen alle Schauspieler und sonstige Mitwirkende zu Wort, erklärt Ridley Scott, warum am Set Krieg herrschte, erfährt man, wie viele Jahre es dauerte, bis tatsächlich jemand den Film zu drehen begann und warum Bladerunner letztendlich doch noch so beliebt wurde, dass der Regisseur höchstpersönlich sein Werk seinen Wünschen entsprechend überarbeitete (was zur Zeit wieder der Fall sein soll). Selbst für Leute, die der Film eher weniger interessiert, bietet Paul Sammon einen kleinen Krimi über die Entstehung eines Hollywood-Streifens, der es in sich hat.
Fazit: Für Fans Pflicht, für alle anderen wärmstens zu empfehlen!

It's not often, that you can find a book that really tells you about how a milestone of movie art was created. Let's be honest: most are junk.
Not so "Future noir"! Paul M. Sammon achieves to give the reader a fascinating, spellbinding insight into the process of making BLADE RUNNER. Written with stunning detail, it really takes you on a grand tour "behind-the-scenes". Sammon is a fan and a man who spent a lot of energy and time on creating an account about the coming-to-be of Ridley Scotts maybe greatest ever achievement, you should listen to him and thank him for this book.
But be warned: no matter how often you have seen BLADE RUNNER before, after reading "Future Noir" you will start seeing it with new, enhanced eyes. And they will be better than the ones out of a test-tube ...

I just finished this book and it's definitely worth a read for anyone that's interested in film production. It's basically a manual that tells you how NOT to make a film. This book was more a case study of project management horror than a book of Blade Runner visuals or hard-core effects.
In any case, it has great interviews of the crew, especially the screenwriters and producers. But the "interview" with Ridley Scott, is completely anti-climactic since it is a patchwork of interviews over the years. It does however, reveal the "practical genius" of the man, especially, when the actors, crew, and producers hated him during the film.
It definitely makes you realize how artistic vision and mass appeal are polar opposites in the film industry. Fun read.

First off, read the title of the book. What does it say? Is the title "A Bloated, Arrogant Analysis of the Movie Blade Runner"? Is it "A Useless Critical Analysis of the Merits of the Movie Blade Runner"? No, it's "The Making of Blade Runner" and if you want to know about the making of this movie then you'll love this book. It isn't written by William Shakespeare. If you want that then go buy MacBeth. If you want some insights into the rewards and heartaches of making a sci-fi movie then this is a good book for it. And by the way, those who say that Blade Runner wasn't a good movie simply haven't watched it enough.

Future Noir almost reads like a novel with its behind the scenes examination of the making of Blade Runner. It is a must-read for anyone who goes to movies for it exposes the harsh realities of personality clashes, near financial disasters, humorous anecdotes, and ultimately a climax after a thrilling roller coaster of a ride of how could this movie have ever been made in the first place. Paul Simmon has put flesh and soul on the names normally ignored as the credits flashed by on the movie screen. He even offers optional sections of his book you can skip without losing the thread of the book (if you wish). This book is easily read, entertaining, and insightful. Learn how movies are funded, how earlier special effects were imaginatively put together, how books get altered into movies, what a director really does, discover the fascinating overlapping and intersecting parallels between movies, stars, and movie personalities. And perhaps most important of all "what was this movie all about anyhow". This book may make you laugh, perhaps even cry. But in all instances, it will give you a greater appreciation of what movie making is all about. With the exception of a number of elusive questions left answered (the delay of a soundtrack to the movie, the real story behind Harrison Ford and Sean Young) and a number of new mysteries raised (who was the third actress screen tested?), Mr. Sammon's book is a refreshing, important look into the one of the most intriguing movies of our time.

For those interested in science fiction, movie making, special effects, and even hollywood gossip, this book contains pleanty to satisfy. If you are a big fan of Philip K. Dick and his works, especially Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep and the movie version Blade Runner, it is of particular interest. This book gets into the minute details of how Blade Runner was conceptualized as a movie, how it was developed, and how eventually it was filmed. Some of the details get a bit overwhelming at some points, like when Sammon talks about the special effects for almost every scene in the movie, but he appropriately forwarns the reader that there will be fairly technical material and to skip it if this is not up your alley. There are lots of interesting accounts from the actors themselves. Sammon did a lot of reporting during the actual filming, but this book over 10 years afterwards, so there are many interviews with the actors with the hindsight and perspective that comes from this amount of time. All in all, an extremely interesting read!

I'm not an expert in the Shakespeare language. Also, I'm not sure if Sammon is also an expert in it. What I know is that Future Noir was the very first english book I'd read with pleasure, although my own dificulties with English language (is my 4th language!). Blade Runner is a MUST for every sci-fi and/or cinema fan, and I'm very pleased with this book. The irritating relation between Ford and Young, the coolness of Hauer and his bright work, Scott's rudeness with the crew, and several other hundreds of things are there. ALL are there... No other book or magazine could be more complete. If you love BR, you must read this book. If you can't buy it, stole it!

Paul Sammon's exhaustive "Future Noir" easily joins "Retrofitting Blade Runner" as one of the indispensable texts on the legendary science-fiction masterpiece. The author carefully details virtually every aspect of the beleagured production, from the tumultuous clashes amongst key personnel to the breathtaking and groundbreaking creation of the special effects. Of particular interest is Sammon's attention to "BR" minutiae: the subtle differences extant in various released versions of the film and the great red herring asking whether or not main character Rick Deckard is himself a replicant.

Although ths book was written many years after the film was made, the author did spend time on the set during the film's original production. Combine that with the fact that he has done many interviews with members of the cast and crew, and this book is *the* authority on the intricate and meticulous production details of Blade Runner.
If such details interest you, then this book is well worth reading - one of the best.
