Tears in the Rain - RIP Rutger

    Realized I'd seen Hauer in 2 movies long ago, Turkish Delight & Spetters from his Dutch movie days.
    But his brilliant presence in Blade Runner remains unforgettable, including the mesmerizing final soliloquy he penned, knowing he needed something special, something more - the replicant with a soul, with vigor, with yearning.
    Somewhat like his take-no-prisoners approach to life - he lived what he felt, pushed the edges - "now you've seen some of my world", he cautioned a shaken journalist he'd just taken on a gonzo 200+ km/h motorcycle ride, "now you can interview me".

    And now you can't. Time to die.
