Sacrificial Sheep: The Novel vs. the Film (2007)

**** (out of 4)

Another excellent featurette that can be found on the 30th Anniversary release of Ridley Scott's BLADE RUNNER. This here runs 15-minutes and basically talks about both the novel, the film, their connections and things that were altered in the movie. Several experts are interviewed here as well as Scott and Dick threw an archival interview and it's clear that the two are completely different animals and should be viewed differently. Throughout this featurette there are aspects of the book that are discussed and we hear what Dick was trying to do with them. We then see how they were altered in the actual movie and we also go through some very detailed aspects that were changed or just completely left out. Obviously this thing is going to be very beneficial to those who might not have read the novel but are a fan of the film and after viewing it I'm sure people are going to be interested in getting the original work. It's quite interesting to hear what Dick wanted from the novel and how it was pretty much against what Scott had in mind. There's no question that it's impossible for a novel to be perfectly brought to the screen and this featurette does a remarkable job at showing both sides of the coin.
