Blade Runner: Where We're Headed?

A future dystopia where Asian languages dominate and anyone who can has gotten off world?  A future where human life is replicated, but the replicants have no rights? 

Truthfully, I love this movie for a little speech by a dying man on a rooftop.  The line "attack ships catch fire off the arm of Orion" is spacially impossible, but a wonderful image, and one of the very few memories this man can call his own.  But lots of violence as well.  Make sure to get the director's cut, which changes the ending by adding a paper animal.
