This Future Looks Familiar: Watching Blade Runner in 2017
I told a lot of people that I was going to watch Blade Runner for the first time, because I know that people have opinions about Blade Runner. All of them gave me a few watery opinions to keep in mind going in—nothing that would spoil me, but things that would help me understand what they assured me would be a Very Strange Film.
None of them told me the right things, though.

Koyaanisqatsi trailer recreated using stock footage
'Koyannistocksi is a shot-by-shot remake of the trailer for Godfrey Reggio's Koyaanisqatsi using only stock footage. A testament to Reggio's influence on contemporary motion photography, and the appropriation of his aesthetic by others for commercial means.'

Nailed it. This is why I find it hard to watch Koyaanisqatsi nowadays -- its imagery and style have been stolen by so many other filmmakers.
