Watch: Red Eyes in Blade Runner

Rob Ager’s video essay tackles a particular question: what role does the color red symbolically serve in Blade Runner, as manifest in the red-eye effect attached to the replicants? Connections are made to other sci-fi films with a fondness for the red-eye effect, like HAL 9000’s artificial eye in 2001: A Space Odyssey.
