I don't have the knowledge to review this in relation to editing etc. but to leave a general review, I have to say I really enjoyed this edit. The pace of the story was perfect, the music changes / additions suited the scenes, the monochrome use too and overall it was a great watch. Thanks for the effort of everyone involved in putting this together.

There was almost nothing that was cut that I missed. I've seen the original probably a dozen times and now seeing this edit it has suddenly become clear to me that so much of the original was filler. And of course it's really fun filler, but as a tight story this edit knocks it out of the park.

I thought the music cues were fantastic, especially in the scenes while driving, and switching the film to black and white during the straight razor scene, having it go back into color when he left the warehouse, and returning to black and white when he went back in was absolutely genius. It was so good I can't believe Tarantino himself didn't do it.

This is in my Top 3 Tarantino Tales, along with Pulp Fiction and Death Proof, and well deserved!
