Just finished watching this edit. My evaluation: flawless visual and audio editing, and no holes in the narrative or theme work (goodbye, God). Like watching an official, studio-released film. The video quality wasn’t perfect – darker scenes suffered from some slight artificating – but that’s just surface. Oscar Isaac dancing was fun, and the new footage didn’t disrupt the film’s pacing at all. The film’s original ending was too sentimental and too tidy. I found thecuddlyninja’s new ending to be far superior. A thought-provoking, entertaining film, and a great edit.
