This is going to be basically incomprehensible unless you've seen both the original Back to the Future and Run Lola Run. However, if you remember how both of those plots unfold, then seeing the mashup here is a LOT of fun. Blueyoda very carefully chooses which frames to select for each "run" through of the past, so we don't get much lazy repetition but instead see mostly slightly different parts/versions of the same scenes. It means that a lot of story gets packed very efficiently into a short run time.

How does this work? What does it all mean? I don't really know and don't really care, to be honest. This is an exercise in raw editing prowess and style, not story. The real fun here for me was in seeing BTTF cut in the rapid editing style of RLR, and synced expertly with the fantastic soundtrack from that film. The quality of the footage is less-than-great in a few spots, and I could quibble about how well some of the photo-flash endings worked in terms of clarity, but this is 12ish minutes that every editor should watch imho.

(Oh, and I do love when people use the Video tab here!)

Tbh I've never seen Run Lola Run, but this edit made perfect sense to me. You do have to have seen BTTF 1 & 2 though, of course.
