Tears in Rain

Bladerunner is classic science fiction...and by classic I don't mean its old and cool because we were 15 when we first watched it. Its classic because it was conceived when science fiction was still exploring those themes of what it means to be human, not in a metaphysical sense, but rather in sense that is grounded in the reality of cosmos. And this scene is one of the best hollywood renditions of that classic science fiction: 



For those who may not have had the opportunity the movie is based on a Philip K. Dick story, "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep." Its different than the movie but the themes are there.
