“Blade Runner’s job is to hunt down Replicants – manufactured humans you can’t tell from the ‘real thing'”, goes the introductory to Ridley Scott’s 1982 movie, based on the SF novel by Philippe K. Dick, Do the Androids dream of Electric Sheep.
It shows the world of the enhanced humanity, but marked with strong hierarchy! The Replicants, genetically engeneered beings, look like humans but are programmed to live for 4 years and working on the dangerous plants out of the Earth – in the space colonies. Their usage on Earth is illegal, and therefore are banned to present among “normal” (biological) humans… however, the great companies still utilize them!
I believe that even this general level of the movie’s content revelas the strong division between new possible forms of humanity, based on biopolitical power, and that is shows in a dystopic manner the destructive potential that bioengeneering of humans can imply. Therefore, it apperas as a radicalization of the neoliiberal capitalism and neocolonialism.
