RIP Rutger Hauer (1944-2019)

Recommended Posts

Absolutely gutted. Everyone is posting gifs of "tears in rain", because I guess that's what they know, but it's my favourite scene in my absolute favourite film. Hauer's performance makes us empathetic of the otherwise cold and calculating Roy, a being which, by design, essentially has no empathy. All the more poignant for me because I'm listening to the audiobook at the moment, and we're at the point where it goes into detail on Voight-Kampf.  

 

Gah :(

Can recommend his most famous Dutch movies Soldier of Orange and Turkish Delight (both helmed by Paul Verhoeven) as well.

 

Sad to see him go.

I always loved Wanted Dead or Alive and Blind Fury.
