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.
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.
