Equation of Crime, The
Pi was one of those films I saw once, "appreciated," and decided never to view again.
I stand corrected.
A surreal slice n dice interpretation.
Really well done; I was confused and off balance the whole time.
Certain that was That One Guy's intent, so good one.
Never noticed video sloppiness or audio errors.
Again, I was too busy going, "Wha?" or "Oh, hell."
Inspired deconstruction of a seriously bent film.
Well, very interesting short. Pi's a pretty crazy movie as is, so chopping it up and playing with the narrative, as the editor has done, makes it even crazier. It's kind of confusing at times, though I think that was probably intended. The decision to make this a silent is a cool one (and I appreciate the color tint). The use of title cards is skillful, though I think there might have been an over reliance, and I'm not sure completely bought the narrative. However, this is, nonetheless, great work.
- Interesting introduction to lay the ground work (and nice to have scenes accompanying the text)
cool song as well
- Video quality was fine save for a few random times where it seemed like a flash of red came on the upper quarter of the screen for a frame or two
- Music choices were great and IMO conveyed the meaning and feeling of the scenes
- Overall I enjoyed this short. Very “outside the box” and clever idea to use a movie about a man obsessed with numbers/solving an equation and change it into a man obsessed with solving a crime.
Awesome concept. The editor really changed the source material to fit the new
subject matter, and pulled it off convincingly. There's some odd visual anomalies
here and there, but they don't detract from the viewing experience. Good music. At
first, I thought this might have been something along the lines of Minority Report or
Radar Secret Service - exploring the potential impact of new technology on the
science of criminal investigation. Instead, it's about the lengths one might go to
prove their innocence - or hide their guilt, perhaps. Great stuff.
Madness! I was very skeptical about this at first, but That One Guy pulled it off with flying colours. Very creative and an great take on the story.
