Caroline Bock-BEFORE MY EYES

Blade Runner


My 17-year-old son has no interest in seeing the new Blade Runner movie, and neither do his friends. Why? They can't or don't want to relate to a dark vision of the technology. They are technological natives. They want careers in tech; they see the promise of tech. They have no connection to the original Blade Runner. They rarely go to the movies in the first place. They have their gaming worlds, their drowning amount of homework (these are bright kids:), their worries fueled by every day grown ups who can't or won't be upfront with them about the perils of climate change they see all around them in stronger storms. They live with inconvenient truths, with dystopian reality, and don't need or desire it in movies now in their lives. They want a future, however, not this one, not this film. Blame Trump. Blame ourselves, their parents, or creators.

Thoughts from other parents??
Or, am I only a replicant?
