(fe) la vie 2.22
Second fall, second video. A distorted mirror of the first chapter, [fe] la vie 2.22 is an outsider’s p.o.v.; flavie’s view of myself, who is now more than what she originally was. The person has become a symbol of so much more and on so many levels that I don’t care to count anymore.
Hope you enjoy this new fragment of my warped and damaged mind.

So I watched this edit a few days ago. I had ZERO idea of what to expect going in. But I remembered hearing that it had gotten some high praise from people on here.
At first I was thinking to myself, "damn, is this whole edit gonna be with this bear?!" but I kept watching. Very cool to see all the films that were used in this assembly and how blueyoda connected them all.
blueyoda's choices made sense to me and this edit was an extremely enjoyable 22 minutes. I'm going to have to check out part 1.
Having not seen the original, I had no idea what to expect when watching the second in BlueYoda's (Fe) La Vie series. And now, after the experience, I wouldn't have had it any other way.
BlueYoda has created a bold Fanedit, exploring themes and thought strands rather than a traditional narrative. Normally such an endeavor would result in a complete indecipherable mess, but everything seems surprisingly tight and interconnected.
In my general interpretation, a tender prologue provides a glimpse into the innocent root of an idea that once existed, which appears to be trying to break through in more adult forms of media and expression throughout the remainder of the runtime. Not knowing the editor, perhaps this is not what was intended but rather what I needed to read out of it. Either way, it was a surprising experience of highs, lows, and discoveries. It made me think and feel in very untraditional but core ways.
Like the original (fe) le vie, this edit defies conventional description, but I will say that I actually enjoyed this one far more than the original.
The elements were bolder and the journey was more engrossing than the original. For me, the biggest difference is that I felt there was more of a thread, I could grasp a flow of events, and that such disparate elements could be reconstituted into such a manner is truly impressive.
Like the original project the video is as good as the edit requires of it and I won't rate it, but this time I do give the narrative a rating because it affected me that much more deeply this time.
blueyoda done went all Hollywood on our asses.
I loved it, and want to see (fe)la vie 3.33.
I wish there were more wild edits like this on the site. I like to see movies improved on or extended, but there just aren’t many new and exciting things being done with fanedits.
Credits at the end, or at the very least as a feature in the DVD menu would have been nice, but overall the presentation was decent.
Keep making these, blueyoda.
