Ford, Ferrari, and their battle for speed and glory at Le Mans.

Brief Synopsis:
Go Like Hell is a light, but technically accomplished, edit that tightens and focuses the narrative of Ford v. Ferrari, resulting in what I believe is a stronger film. I loved the original release, but even in theatres found myself questioning the authenticity of some aspects, causing a dissatisfaction that I felt wasn't necessary.
Intention:
The purpose of this edit was to focus the film more on the story of Ken Miles (played by Christian Bale), as well as to have more grounding in reality, and rid it of many clichés that sports movies and biopics often suffer from. For the first time, my goal was to make this a replacement for the original: I want this to be something I can revisit without my mind wandering out of the film's reality, while still maintaining the charm and integrity the original has, so there's nothing that feels missing or incomplete.
Special Thanks:
TM2YC for being the only one who showed interested in the edit, and assisting me in the editing process.

Editing Details:
Edited using Premiere Pro, often utilising 5.1 channels to isolate audio and/or make smooth transitions from where I cut. Other than that, this was a pretty linear editing process - I started watching the film, and cut whatever I saw fit from there.

Dialogue, pacing, and direction have all been improved for a better experience. The movie gets an 8.5. The edit gets a 10!

Saw this is the theatre and enjoied the film. This "Ken Miles" centric edit for me was much better making the story more cohesive. Thanks for the great work

Another wonderful Macmilln edit. Go Like Hell does a phenomenal job at taking an already fantastic film — Ford v Ferrari — and making it more grounded, with seamless editing from start to finish.
