Hello love letter to the city! I just watched Cruising not too long ago and this made me think of that because of the contrast. I really enjoyed the energy of this.

Great vid! Oh, why can't it be May, 30 (or whenever S3 starts) already?

Your editing is so crisply fantastic - that is one driving beat to keep up with, and you did a superb job of it. I felt like I didn't breathe the whole time I was watching it, as caught up as I was.

Gorgeous pairing of source to song. I loved your matches of lyrics to clips ("What love used to be" indeed!).

Damn! This definitely goes on the list of vids of a quality I can only aspire to one day.

What a great sense of movement this vid has, I loved that about it. It's such a wonderfully flip, fun vid, my favorite WC one I've seen yet.

I love the love affair the show's camera with the city even though at least one person I know has said the NYC is not that clean and shiny :) I love that your vid has picked up on all that wonderful footage. It's a lovely vibrant vid.

ifreet: Debbie Reynolds with exultant arms, text "Whee!" (Whee! Singing in the Rain)
From: [personal profile] ifreet
Fantastic! I love the play of lyrics and imagery, particularly "keep it in its box" with Peter holding up the tracker and Neal's reaction, "what love" paired with Kate's turn is perfect (and beautifully timed to the music).

And the progression of the vid as a whole! From Neal being his competent criminal self, to all the scenes of Peter catching/collecting Neal through the secrets kept from Peter... and then the turning point images of the music box and the handing over of lockpicks, leading to Neal and Peter working (and moving) increasingly in sync. So good that I apparently can't turn the thoughts into complete sentences.

And I am so impressed with the technical aspects -- that song is fast.

Wow, this is awesome. It's so thrilling and intense without losing the sense of fun that makes the show. (If that makes sense.)
