Oh my god, this is perfect. My favorite movie and my favorite character (Exley you vicious babycop), and you've woven it so perfectly together. I love the journey you take us on, Ed from shiny newbie, all honor and "justice", and how LA/Dudley corrupts him. He's the monster they've made him, but he's a righteous monster. And the juxtaposition of Bud and Lynn is just gorgeous - how he parallels them both, how they're all mirrors for each other in different ways. Just amazing, thank you so much for this vid!

Yeah, I like how he is totally corrupted by the events of the movie... but that's actually a happy ending.

This is so fantastic, the song choice so amazing, and the parallels between character relationships so perfect, that I can barely type from this need to just FLAIL AT YOU INSTEAD. HOLY CRAP I LOVE EVERY SECOND OF THIS.

Oh this is gorgeous. So gorgeous. Ed, my beautiful, vicious darling. And I love, love what you did with him and Lynn here in particular. The echoes and the bruises. So spectacular. This is a hell of a thing, and I thank you for it.

:D :D :D

You'd think they'd both be mad at Bud, but that scene is pretty much them feeling guilty at each other--probably because they both know Bud is a sensitive marshmallow underneath. I like how they're both much more hardened characters than he is, regardless of what anyone else thinks of the three of them.

God, this is FANTASTIC. The distrust and suspicion, coming to trust and competitiveness -- the envy, the jealousy, the hurt, the SLASH, the JUSTICE, the doing the right thing the wrong way, the final happy ending and hints of m/f/m denouement... you got it all PERFECTLY in under 4 minutes and with a great song choice. Bravo!!

I love the way you edited this- the close-ups, the intercutting between scenes (like Ed and Lynn vs. Bud confronting Ed) the screen wipes, everything. Thanks so much!

Sorry I didn't use your song suggestion. I wasn't sure who you meant it for given that the movie has the three intertwining narratives of Bud, Ed, and Jack and I can see plenty of shippy possibilities. (Jack/that guy who was on The Mentalist! I had totally forgotten that was who played the doomed bi actor.)
