        Blade Runner is generally regarded as *the* Cyberpunk movie.
The book title is "Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?" by Philip K. Dick.
This movie was really the first of the cyberpunk genre and has generated
quite a following.

[phaedrus@unkaphaed.UUCP adds:]
        Those with access to laserdisc players should check out the Criterion
      version of Blade Runner, with letterboxing and all the neat-o stuff on the
      last side (mostly still frames).

        Blade Runner groupies will be undoubtedly thrilled to learn that,
      according to today's [27 Aug] Globe and Mail (Toronto-based Canadian
      newspaper), the infamous director's cut of Blade Runner will be
      showing at the Festival of Festivals, Toronto's modestly-named annual
      film festival.

As of September 11 the rumors of a Directors Cut of BR were finally put to rest.
It was nationally released in theatres around the US. I am unsure if it has/will
be released overseas.
