Cyberpunk is a fantastically interesting genre and sub-culture. It can easily be summed up with the quote,

High Tech, Low Life.

It’s about the future of technology as an extension of humanity. A way to imagine the merging of our physical work to the world of cyberspace, the internet and computers.

The genre has plethora of tropes that it uses both aesthetically and in their narratives. Blade Runner directed by Ridley Scott is a well known Cyberpunk movie. Themes include, rouge androids, Special police units, Off world colonies, and the nature of memories and true Artificial Emotions.

Blade Runner is a fantastic movie and well worth a watch even today.Cyberpunk is rich in narrative styles and is still a visually stunning genre.
