Effective storytelling here, capturing just one player, one dream, from "Field Of Dreams."
Story here is of Archibald (Archie) Graham who barely had the whisper of a chance.
The edit does not waste time, presents the premise, then jumps back to Iowa.
Time constraints are telling in this edit. Other character's narratives surface without resolution.
Kinsalla's motivation, for example, is not explained, nor is the cornfield.
As expected, Adabisi's editing is excellent, and he has done well with his material.
A great excerpt from A Field of Dreams. As I'm familiar with the source material, this worked well for me. However, I fear that anyone who isn't familiar with the film will be left with a lot of questions and won't get the full emotional impact. I think a few more minutes could have been trimmed and replaced with some sort of brief intro. Still, I enjoyed this :)
This was a good edit of a good movie, probably the most famous baseball film of all time. It is a concise retelling of the main narrative, and features great performances all around. However the only problem I had was that unless you had seen the original you would be quite lost. The edit seems to start in the middle of a scene and this may be disorenting for a new viewer. Nevertheless, technically sound and very entertaining. My favorite moment of course was Burt Lancaster (forgot he was in this), one of the greatest actors of all time imo.
I thought this was OK, but this one left me wanting more. It seemed like there should have been more explanation for the base ball field and it seemed to end abruptly. As far as cuts and audio go, it was waterproof. The A/V was very good compared to some others on the disk.
Very charming little tale (even for someone who does not care about baseball at all, like me !)
There's a beginning, a middle and an ending, there is a bit of emotion. In such a short time, it's pretty amazing. Editing is very good.
