Maybe too on-brand?
I relate it to the covers theory, that any great music artist can improve on a perfect song by a classic band, because the template’s already there. Ninety percent of the work is done. You’ll even be picking the song you can sing the best. So play it well, and add some new touches. That’s all you have to do.
So it’s not a huge achievement. Not like the original. It’s an experiment. But I think it’s mostly an improvement. He’s providing an alternate viewing experience. But I happen to like the subtle shifts in detail.
In other words, it’s a reshoot of the original, with added subtext. Any of the connections that you feel like making. Why slag that project I have no idea.
