This book is lovingly known as "The Bible" to Blade Runner fans, largely due to it's attention to detail. If someone dropped a coin on set Paul M Sammon will tell you, somewhere in this book, the year it was pressed.
Well 12 years on from it's original release, much has happened, most notably, the new "Final Cut" of the film. Which, like the making of the original film, did not run smoothly, with the restoration project shutting down for a couple of years. So apart from Paul getting the chance to add all this further detail, he's gone back and added corrections, additional titbits and a kitchen sink, and now runs at a worthy 588 pages!
My only negative is the lack of and quality of photographs. There is no section of glossy pages with glossy photos, all we get are several small, dot-screened images that are dark and not even to the quality of newspaper print.
Future Noir is not a very polished book, but I don't class that as a flaw. You could imagine you are reading 25 years of Paul M Sammon's blog, its personable, he highlights short-comings with the book, he offers his own opinion and even interrupts himself to shoehorn in yet another fact. But I love it, it's not a bit of PR or cash-in memorabilia, this is a public record of one of the best films of all time, warts and all.
