Well, it turns out that Ridley Scott has a son, and it also turns out that the boy is both a writer and director. The son’s name is Luke Scott and has created a short film called Loom. Luke has said that Loom is inspired by the sci-fi classic, Blade Runner. You know, that film that his father directed and there are about 18 million versions of. There is little to no connection between the films other than they are both set in a cyberpunk-dystopia. He also shot the short film on RED cameras, so it looks absolutely beautiful.
I really dig Loom for what it is. It’s slow and it’s not clear as to what it wants to do, but I enjoyed it. Gotta love scientists going rogue and playing god.
Hey, check it out! It’s the crazy guy from Ted! Oh, and this shit is NSFW…you’ll see.
