Philip K. Dick, the complete list of movies and TV shows inspired by his works

Posted by

It’s always nice when a great artist, in any area, begins to be mentioned by everybody for the quality of his works, even when the reason is “pop”, like the release in the era of internet of a movie-reboot taken from one of his most important novels (Blade Runner 2049). Those who love Philip K. Dick and his visions had already read with pleasure about the ontological perspective of the Denis Villeneuve’s Blade Runner, the role of the woman in the movie and the way Dick saw its own role as a science fiction writer.

Today it is useful to know the complete list of movies and tv shows extracted from his works. They are more than what you can imagine and they span between classic sci-fi movies and modern works from great directors, up to the recent, surprising series by Amazon Video, Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams, ten dystopic episodes that makes you think about the future even more than Black Mirror.

Many other movies and tv shows have been produced, basing on his works. Here the full list:
