Brief Synopsis:
New credits
Trimmed a few scenes.
Replaced the original William Olvis score with Angelo Badalamenti where possible.
A new altered open ending
Intention:
Every time I watch Red Rock West I get vibes of Twin Peaks. And Red Rock West has three actors who has worked with David Lynch in the past
Nicolas Cage in "Wild at heart", Dennis Hopper in "Blue Velvet" and Lara Flynn Boyle in Twin Peaks.
So I just wanted to connect this film into the world that Mark Frost and David Lynch created with Twin Peaks.
And to add some classic tunes of Angelo Badalamenti.

By all rights, this should be a lot gimmickier than it was, but in the end, the "Twin Peaks" connection is kind of easily sloughed off while watching this edit, and Angelo Badalamenti's atmospheric and spooky score compliments this excellent, little-seen Western noir to a T. The re-editing takes care of some of the slower parts of the original and what's left is an improved version of an already excellent film. A really pleasurable experience, and something that every fan of Lynch and crime movies in general should stop what they're doing and watch right now.

This is a light edit that makes some subtle changes to Red Rock West to give it a more Lynchian feel.

A/V Quality: Very good quality, good file size, no issues here.

A/V Editing: Seamless cuts, was hard to tell what had been removed. The new ending was well cut. The new score fits in naturally and at good locations.

Narrative/Enjoyment: The narrative is perfectly cohesive, the new ending is smart and I preferred it over the original. Overall, a really fun film to watch, great work from Dawnrazor.
