Unequivocally better than the original, in my opinion.

I watched the original a short time before watching this edit, and I think this new narrative structure is superior. We start with Scanlon, end with Scanlon, and we're transported to Chile just before the 10 minute mark.

The plot resolves at a pace that feels more modern and deliberate, while the other characters are seamlessly introduced through well-executed flashbacks that help us understand the "why" of their predicament.

The original had me asking, "Ok, where is this going?" for the first half hour, and without some foreknowledge of the story that unfolds in Chile I likely would have disconnected. Some of that's on me, but then this is a personal review.

The trims to the pre-Chile threads are tidy and smart.

If you enjoyed the original and are interested in revisiting it, I definitely recommend this.
