This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
This is the most meaningful film about meaninglessness.
Officer K's dream of being more than just a replicant is crushed. His hologram girlfriend (whose love for him is inherently a falsity) disappears before his eyes. There is no heroic revolution that overthrows the evil Wallace Corporation, nor is there any significant truce drawn between humans and replicants. The story of Blade Runner 2049 centers on a character who is of no consequence to the narrative.
Cinema doesn't need to be…
