For shooting of the scene in Las Vegas, Nevada, cinematographer Roger Deakins was inspired by a memory of seeing the Sydney Opera House in Australia after a dust storm. Director Denis Villeneuve suggested adding the giant erotic statue. See more »
(at around 1h 6 mins) The back of K's jacket gets dirty during the fight before reaching the orphanage and then is completely clean when inside the orphanage. See more »
I hope you don't mind me taking the liberty. I was careful not to drag in... any dirt.

In India, the film had to be censored before it could receive an 'A' rating from the CBFC (Indian rating's board); these cuts removed all shots of nudity from the film; while it was pointed out that the nudity was in fact computer generated images rather than real footage the censors still objected to this and demanded cuts. The censors also demanded that all shots of liquor bottles in the film have their labels be blurred out. See more »
Blade Runner 2049 of course came with its own expectations and a bar that was set quite high. I was drawn in by the promise of that universe, the graphics and the giant holographic woman and was not disappointed. The CGI and the building, as well as the beautiful women were what I expected. I wish I had a 'wife' that pretty.
Unfortunately, again the bar was set high, but this film did not deliver. There are too many loose ends and the film does not give the audience a conclusion. The major surprise regarding replicants and what they can do is also a bridge too far. I do agree that the film is slow, which coupled with the lack of a conclusion brings my rating down.
