As someone who's always admired Blade Runner, but had a hard time liking it, this edit is a gift. The rapey parts are gone, and there's added deleted scenes that return some of the humanity to Deckard. While there are splendidly cleaned-up technical edits (TM2YC deserves all the accolades he received for the breathtaking BR: Penultimate Cut), this is possibly the most enjoyable version of the film, with a Deckard that's a little easier to spend time with. The choice to leave the entire film grainy so the deletions don't stick out works as a wonderful aesthetic choice.

My only quibble would be the presence of the unicorn origami at the end. With the excision of the unicorn dream, it doesn't seem to serve much purpose. Also, as someone who'll stick up for the narration, I'd love to see GGD with a voiceover, just in case Keo decides to revisit this edit. But if not, no great loss, this is still an essential version of one of the most gorgeous films ever made.
