Lost: The Crash
Lost: Missing Pieces
Some liberties were taken in order to achieve this. Many scenes were reordered or intercut with events from different episodes to streamline things and music has also been added to some segments for cohesion or emphasis in the narrative structure. A major challenge was choosing not to use any footage with opening credits overlaid. I did this to improve the experience of the viewer, but it was much more difficult to get across important information in some cases since that's often where exposition takes place.
I really enjoyed this edit having been a fan of Lost since the beginning.A must watch for Lost fans," So I guess I’m out of the book club."
A rather brilliant condensing of Lost season 1 into a single three hour film. It's all there, all the characters, the plots, the emotional beats. Besides a few strange moments (that are few and far between) it's hard to believe that this edit cut out almost eleven hours of material.
Essentially, this is a great way to re-watch the first season of one of TV's greatest shows without having to spend too much time on it. I almost feel that this could even work as someone's introduction to the show - such is the quality of this edit that I think a non-fan would understand and appreciate it.
My only criticism is that I do feel there are too many flashbacks, most of which end up being relatively unnecessary. But, if you're looking for Lost Season 1: the Digest Version, look no further, you've, uh, found it.
This was a pretty darn good edit of LOST season 1. The plot lines are streamlined well and the editing is nicely executed. For my tastes though, I felt there were too many flashbacks that had little bearing on the story as a whole and dragged things down a little. But definitely worth watching, and I look forward to the next installment.
