on 7/31/2009 had this to say:

"Do androids dream of electric sheep? Nope. They dream of unicorns. The director's cut of Blade Runner, which was considered "too arty" for theatrical release by the producers, seems to suggest that Deckard (Harrison Ford) is a replicant himself, implanted with fantastic visions of mythical creatures. Why else would his handler, Gaff (Edward James Olmos), leave an origami unicorn outside of his door in the final scene? How could he know? This little twist ending pushed this film into the realm of greatness. Dekard's quest to preserve the purity of mankind, his initial refusal to accept replicants as living creatures, fighting to maintain their own existence just like any other organism, evolves into a struggle to accept his own "humanity." Star Wars was more fun for me as a kid, but Blade Runner still hits me harder than any other sci-fi film to this day. "All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in rain.""
