When I contacted the screenwriter of Blade Runner and Blade Runner 2049 for a remembrance of Nicolas Roeg, who died on Friday at the age of 90, Hampton Fancher sent the following beautiful poetic tribute.
"I didn't know him but I knew him. I knew him more than others I haven't known because of what they've done and they're gone and now Roeg is gone and what he's done is a part of me and it hurts to know he's not here anymore but what he's done is and it makes me glad. Even dead he's the same Roeg I always knew. He was his name." - Hampton Fancher
