Ridley Scott's film "Blade Runner" is rooted in the myths and legends of Western culture and draws on a number of genres including film noir and science fiction. Central to the plot, though, is the Genesis story of the creation and fall. Gravett examines the religious subtext of the film, and discusses Deckard and Roy Batty's relationship in terms of the biblical story of Jacob and Esau.
