Blade Runner is more than a cult classic: it’s an icon, the modern definition of dystopian future-noir. Its visual, auditory and narrative complexity remain striking more than 30 years after its debut. Now, a Swedish group of artists, musicians and writers seeks to create an entire experience inspired by the seminal movie, with help from Indiegogo.

On the weekend I read a troubling story about a Wall Street Journal reporter who had his jaw “split in half” by a group of thieves who stole an iPad from his partner while on the New York subway.
