I too was pretty impressed by both the visual and narrative continuity. I brought my gf along, who went in completely blind, and she too enjoyed the movie. Now I'm trying really hard to dress her like Joi. That simple black outfit she was wearing throughout the movie was beautifully subtle yet enough to give me a cyber thot hard-on. LOL
Rumor mills, Denis is set to direct the Dune reboot, which I'm stoked for after seeing BR 2049. (I highly recommend all his previous films, if you haven't already seen them.) I've always thought of the stillsuit-WHERE MY DUNE FANS AT?-as the perfect antithesis to ACR jackets. One conserves water while the latter repels it. And both come it black.
I literally went out and bought a NikeLab parka after seeing the movie. haha Honestly though, the coat just goes too hard in the paint here in SoCal. I vaguely remember reading in an interview that they actually layered the cotton with black paint repeatedly to give it that weathered look.
