I really like this vid. I love the way you've cut in dialog from the movie, and the way you've marked it off visually as well--there's this fascinating way that the tv artifacts put a layer between the viewer and what's going on in the vid.

This is beautiful and fascinating and very true to the characters.

Thank you so much! This was the first time I'd ever played around with those video effects and using dialogue from the source, so I'm particularly glad those elements worked for you.

I love this so much! I really love it when vids use dialog from the source and music together (and wish it was done more often), and it is lovely and bittersweet and queer and EEEEE.

I've never seen the movie, so I really liked the bits of dialogue in there.

Oh, yes. I have this impossible desire to clutch all the boys to my chest right this second and tell them that it's all going to work out in the end, even though I'd be skirting the truth.
