A blend of science fiction and noir detective fiction, Blade Runner was a box office and critical bust upon its initial exhibition, but its unique postmodern production design became hugely influential within the sci-fi genre, and the film gained a significant cult following that increased its stature, so that by many today it is considered one of the great masterpieces of the science fiction genre. In 1992, Ridley Scott released the popular director's cut that removed Deckard's narration, added a dream sequence, and excised a happy ending imposed by the results of test screenings; these legendary behind-the-scenes battles were chronicled in a 1996 tome, Future Noir: The Making of Blade Runner, by Paul M. Sammon.

Peter Strickland is a master manipulator of mood. As Festival audiences who experienced his 2012 film Berberian Sound Studio can attest, the English writer-director and long-time experimental musician also has an exceptional knack for paying sly homage to traditionally lowbrow genres. This film demonstrates a marvellous gift for modulating tone, pitching the tenor in a strange and beguiling register somewhere between Luis Buñuel's Belle de Jour and Joseph Losey's The Servant. It is by turns kinky, dryly comic, and compellingly surreal. It also boasts gorgeous and gothic cinematography that is enriched by an enveloping score by orchestral pop duo Cat's Eyes. The Duke of Burgundy is — like Strickland's previous work —is a richly immersive sensory experience.
