In memory of Rutger Hauer, who acted in more films than I would care to count, but will forever be remembered in our hearts as Roy Batty, the terrifying yet poetic replicant fighting against ”retirement” – which in the dystopian world of Blade Runner, meant quite simply ”his life”.
I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.
Time to die.
As fate would have it, Rutger Hauer died on 19 July 2019 – the same year that Roy was ”retired”.

Celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, Apollo’s Muse: The Moon in the Age of Photography @ The Metropolitan Museum of Art, surveys visual representations of the moon from the dawn of photography through the present. In addition to photographs, the show features a selection of related drawings, prints, paintings, films, astronomical instruments, and cameras used by Apollo astronauts.
It will run through September 22, 2019. One more good reason to return to the Met.
