Tear Jerker: Blade Runner

  • The cruel way Deckard completely undresses Rachael's humanity, recalling memories no one else could have known had she been a real human. The way she throws away her treasured photo of herself and her mother is heartbreaking.
  • Zhora's retirement. It emotionally sets up Roy's reprieve of Deckard. The song played during this scene, "Blade Runner Blues", also helps give the scene its mood.
  • Roy Batty's famous soliloquy at the end is very poignant.
    Roy: 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 Tannhauser Gate. All those... moments... will be lost in time, like tears... in... rain. Time... to die...
  • Roy tearing up over Pris' corpse and giving her one final kiss after Deckard shoots her dead.
