I had been hesitant to watch this fanedit as I love Insomnia - I’ve watched it probably as many times as I’ve watched Memento - and I didn’t think the Mementomix aspect of this edit would work. So I viewed as Stankpak intended, an alternate cut as a bonus on Disc 2. Doing so made me enjoy it more than if I viewed it as a theatrical film in its own right. The narrative is a mess and the non-chronological timeline doesn’t work, it could have worked but it felt slapped together. Others have mentioned editing flaws in the transitions and I dig that Memento had a lot of abrupt cutting and overuse of fades but some of the work here was sloppy.

All that being said I was still able to enjoy watching this. It made me think about the movie and analyze the little things more.

A/V Quality - 9
Editing - 5
Narrative - 5
Enjoyment - 7 (original 9)
