Perfect choice for the regressive dystopian future category. I also saw a couple of people here and elsewhere highlight the work of cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki and how he captured things. I think of Blade Runner
(also dystopian) more as a filmic essay on how meanings and values are ascribed within the context of human vs automaton/off world replicant -- with the idea of obtrusive law enforcement, uber-surveillance and 'difference.' Agree, though, that both films are essentially, in the end, hitting on some of the same ideas.
