Why do you think Blade Runner is a cult film?

I was lucky to watch this at our local arts cinema a few months back (despite owning the video, dvd and bluray already) and I drank in every scene - it was the best cinema experience I've had in a long time.
It was a film I didn't really 'get' when I was young, but as I got older I started to appreciate it more with each viewing, and now I love it. I think because it deals with life and mortality, its themes are timeless and the setting is so lived-in it just feels natural. I also love the soundtrack to death!

I love this film too.I think Rutger Hauer is outstanding in it.I had to watch it a few times to get it all straight in my mind.
It is one film where I don't want the hero to win.

Having Harrison Ford and Rutger Hauer is a great start. Rugter's portral of Roy Batty was brilliant. Visually it was and remains an excellent movie.
True, those two actors do lend the film something unique. I especially like how those buildings are tilted. We don't have anything that even remotely resembles that bizarre appearance yet. Also the perpetual darkness provides the film with the right somber mood just as it does in Dark City.
