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.
