    The Hitcher. So wonderfully evil.

    #4 1 year ago

    A terrible loss for the Netherlands!
    A magnificent actor I knew from my childhood as Floris (the tv series).
    Great in Blind Fury, Bladerunner, Wedlock, Salute of the Jugger and many, many more....

    RIP, Rutger.

    Flesh and blood, hitcher, blade runner.
    Great actor and great films.

    #8 1 year ago

    Anybody here want to watch something they've definitely never seen before?!

    Check out "Spetters" which I just saw at the film museum in Amsterdam.

    It's a tale of action, hope, coming of age, motocross, and of course fried bitterballen and croquettes. Lots of penises too.

    Hauer has a small but prominent role in this bizarre Paul Verhoven Dutch classic!

    #9 1 year ago

    Eureka, Flesh and Blood, and Bladerunner alone, were stand out roles by Rutger that brought complexity, humility, charm, and strength in a way not seen in the cinema of his day, and certainly not today.

    Really always felt great love for the guy, makes me tear up just thinking about the actual presence he had in film, and ideally, the world.

    #10 1 year ago

    Don't forget NightHawks.

    #11 1 year ago

    This was one my favorites along with The Hitcher, Wanted: Dead or Alive

    RIP Rutger...

    Enjoyed many of your movies in the cinema......thank you for that!

    #14 1 year ago

    Any movie he was in caught my eye. Great actor, great characters. RIP

    #15 1 year ago

    Can't say I've seen much of his more recent work beyond "Hobo with a Shotgun." Wow that was a weird movie.

    Not Spetters weird but weird.

    Many a classic; even Flesh & Blood

    #22 1 year ago

    He was a legend, Flesh and Blood, The Hitcher, Blade Runner the man delivered incredible performances. I remember seeing Flesh and Blood in theater and I don't remember if we snuck in or just as a kid you could see anything in those days but there was like the beginning of me and one of my best friends busting up laughing at inappropriate things. My buddy to this day does Rutger impression from that movie.

    Such a great movie! Twisted throwback to R-Rated 80's B-movies. Killer poster with a killer tagline. RIP Rutger

    RIP, Rutger.[quoted image]

    Below from an article I read:
    When I interviewed Hauer in 2011, he told me director Ridley Scott told him he wanted Roy to be “everything and more” than a human was, to which the actor responded, “Can I do a sense of poetry, and maybe a sense of beauty, and can I have a soul, or sense of humor, or be a 7-year-old? Can I love my sister? Can I be sexless but sexy at the same time? Can I be wicked?” He could, and he did.
    “I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe,” he tells Deckard, his body slowing down as water pours off his synthetically perfected brow. “Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. C-beams glittering in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All these moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.”

    (If you accept the reading that Deckard is himself a replicant, underlined if not quite confirmed by the 2017 sequel Blade Runner 2049, then Roy’s speech has a different but equally poignant meaning: He’s telling Deckard how much potential he has, and how much it’s been reined in by the humans who’ve programmed him to hunt his own kind.)

    The speech’s most enduring line came not from screenwriters Hampton Fancher or David Peoples but Hauer himself, who, by his own account, “took a knife to” a much lengthier soliloquy in the script. The sci-fi references to Orion and C-beams were from the text, but “tears in rain” was Hauer’s, and that, along with the dying light in Roy’s eyes, is what will endure.

    Those apparently contradictory qualities all come together in Roy’s final monologue, which he delivers to the bounty hunter Deckard (Harrison Ford) after he corners him on a rooftop. Deckard seems just seconds from his death, but Roy is also literally about to expire, and rather than have his last act be a destructive one, Roy decides to pass on what he knows, albeit to an audience who’s only partly capable of understanding it.

    He was badass and a man's man, not slimy like Arnie.
    Yes, it is time for a Bladerunner pin! Tired of themes like Munsters, Black Knight or Wonka!

    RIP, big fellow!Tot Ziens!

    #26 1 year ago

    Bladerunner was for me, an eye opening perspective on not only the way I watched movies, but life itself.

    It’s a dream theme pinball machine for me, but they are too busy making Munsters and Jurassic Park again. Shrugs.

    Magnificent actor, highly enjoyable movie.

    He did a man’s job, sir!

    RIP

    #34 1 year ago

    It was a sad moment yesterday when my wife broke the news to me. Roy Batty was the first nuanced antagonist I came to appreciate in my youth. Mr Hauer’s talent in that role is unmatched to this day. Ladyhawke (even the soundtrack) is still my favorite fantasy movie and wholly unappreciated in my opinion. Recently, I enjoyed his voice talents lended to Arjen Anthony Lucassen’s “Lost in the new Real.” RIP Rutger Hauer and thank you.

    I always loved Wanted: Dead or Alive. Fuck the bonus. as takes out Gene Simmons as the Terrorist. Of course Blade Runner and Ladyhawk as well. I will have to search out a few of these others mentioned.

    Man, him and Craig T. were great in that! Such a fantastic, dumb weird, 1984 paranoia action flick. (John Hurt and Meg Foster were awesome also!)

    It's amazing how many roles he did that were genuinely memorable.
