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?)

Having shared interests is important for a healthy relationship. Unless the interests are both very illegal and very dangerous, anyway. Very impressive editing on display here - everything flows naturally. It doesn't feel like anything has been excised. Heartbreaking and intense. The only downside is the wonky 30fps framerate, which isn't correctable with the editor's current software. Excellent results in spite of this technical limitation, however.
