This is a very cool and slick edit.
Requiem for a dream cut down to 15 minutes is a very cool idea.
And it works for the most part really well.

The edit is not in HD and it would be cool to get an upgraded version of this.
I still prefer the original version but I really enjoyed this shorter version as well.

A well executed edit!
Good work!

Very well edited short. Essentially tells one of the two main storylines of Requiem for a Dream in just 15 minutes.
A/V quality was good but I noticed stuttering throughout. Main issue I had was with Harry's ending, didn't quite make sense, otherwise narratively quite cohesive. Very smart changes made to keep the story flowing.

Ambitious short by Adabisi of 2000's "Requiem Of A Dream," focusing on the collapsing relationship between Harry and Marion (Jared Leto and Jennifer Connelly).
Straight off - I never liked the original film. Leto and Connelly have zero chemistry, and even though the actors are only a year apart, Connelly looks old enough to be his mother.
That said, this is a damn good short, as Adabisi effectively gets to the heart of their story.
The rollicking pace sweeps the viewer along, though the narrative gets a bit incoherent at points.
I still dislike the movie, but I really enjoyed Adabisi's crystallized synth.

Really great short version of 'Requiem for a Dream.' The editing is masterful. It's really tough to condense a feature length narrative into 15 minutes but Adabisi did a great job. The only thing that was a bit off was the arm, however I get the idea (that he hallucinated, fell off a building and that was the result) it's just that a clean arm severing didn't totally work with that injury. There's not a seam visible in the edit, very well done.

This was pretty great. First off, the stuttering of the video didn't bother me, and in fact I thought it enhanced the drugged out atmosphere of the film. The only real fault I think this has is that we're missing some stuff from the end. SPOILERS for a 16 year old film... All of a sudden Leto is missing an arm? Whaaaaa? We don't see that happening. Unless I had some serious amnesia while watching this, that came out of nowhere. Now of course, I've seen the movie so I know what happened, but in the context of this short, it's not quite right. But seriously, that's really the only issue I had with this. (Ok fine, that and the fact that I wish you had kept the double-anal-dildo scene. Fine I said it, are you happy?)
