"Il recupero di 'Ma gli androidi...' avviene nel 1982 - l'anno della morte di Dick - grazie alla comparsa sugli schermi di Blade Runner di Ridley Scott. Pur distaccandosi in più punti dall'opera di Dick, tanto da rendere totalmente umani i `replicanti' e da eliminare quasi del tutto dalla trama i motivi religiosi e il ruolo giocato dagli animali artificiali, Ridley Scott cattura la visione tragica e insieme grottesca di 'Ma gli androidi...', accentuando la metamorfosi del 'genere' SF in un noir cupo e metafisico, in cui Rick Deckard, recitato da Harrison Ford, assorbe qualcosa del detective Philip Marlowe di Chandler e affronta in un truculento duello western-futuristico il Roy Batty di Rutger Hauer, pericolosamente contiguo a un superuomo germanico, mentre Sebastian - introdotto nel film al posto di Isi-dore - introduce lo spettatore nel suo personale mondo di balocchi, simile a una sinistra Disneyland. Ibridazione si aggiunge quindi a ibridazione, senza che si possa ricomporre in modo definitivo l'immagine frantumata di un mondo a venire, che è dentro di noi, sepolto nei sogni e nelle fantasie del nuovo millennio." (Dall'introduzione di Carlo Pagetti)

Dick's writing and though this is not one of his best, the "Pizza and Sex Rule" applies to him; ie. just as even bad pizza and / or sex is still pretty good, bad PKD is as well. And this is not bad at all. The firs Leggi tutto
It takes five full pages for a character to buy a goat and ONE FRIGGIN' SENTENCE for a character to "fall in love". This book was so amazing in the beginning...and then suddenly everything plummeted downhill. It was almost as if Dick got 150 pages in and then said "awwww screw it...uh, sentence, sen Leggi tutto

I Love Dick. There I've said it. No, not a “Mood Organ” or blood filled skin sack made to facilitate reproduction but Philip K. Dick .

I'd watched Blade Runner several times, but hadn't read Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep. The book and movie don't entirely match up, but they are both thought-provoking and entertaining in their own right. Fans of the film will notice serious discrepancies in the book as I did ( Leggi tutto
An android walks into a bar. "Hey!", the bartender says, "Only people with feelings are allowed in here! You need empathy in order to be in a joke like this, or at least have something people can relate to." "Oh, don't worry", the android replies, "I definitely feel empathy." Relieved, the bartender in Leggi tutto

Is Deckard an android? "An android," he said, "doesn't care what happens to another android. That's one of the indications we look for.""Then," Miss Luft said, "you must be an android."That stopped him; he stared at her. This is all I could think about when reading. I really looked for evidence to bac Leggi tutto
