This is a very nice edit. A bare essentials cut of Drive which follows both the love plot and Standard's plot. Well chosen tracks for the rescore.

AV quality is a bit low. Editing transitions are mostly good. It cuts off a little abruptly at the end credits.

Not sure what cuddly was aiming for with this short of "Drive."
This version is certainly not a love story. More like a tone poem or mood piece.
Some of the transition edits are first rate, meaning inspired.
All editing is solid, save for the closing credits which end with a thunk.
A couple seconds would have helped.
The narrative follows Gosling's character as he befriends folks.
Scene to scene, fairly cohesive though it does not fit into this Consecution.
Don't misunderstand, I enjoyed this, but cuddly has done better work.

Very nicely done short. Editing was seamless and I loved the added music. The only downside for me was that it was a bit too simple and kind of just a condensation of "Drive".

Getaway is essentially the Cliff's Notes version of Drive, focusing on the relationship between the Driver and Irene. For the most part, it's a successful short, with some really well done editing. Newly added music draped over fanedited sequences pull a lot of emotion. However, like the source film, this re-edit feels just a tad forced at times. Oscar Isaac's character, Standard, feels more like an afterthought rather than a vehicle for moving the plot forward. 'Getaway' probably could have benefited from just a few more minutes where it might have introduced the relationship between the three adult characters a little better. Alas, the consecution series always presents a challenge with the short runtime constraints, and I should emphasize that thecuddlyninja has done a great job with this edit. I watched via Vimeo and the a/v quality was excellent. Getaway is a great contribution to the consecution collection.
