I know the feeling. I am finally starting to get to (but am not quite at) the point where I feel like I can watch the film again. Aside from the constant color critiques that pop into your head, even just knowing precisely what shot follows exactly which shot (even small, non-iconic ones) is enough to kind of ruin the fun in my opinion, as my mind would kind of go to the next shot instead of focusing on what was on the screen. And there was a time where I could have been given every individual shot and assembled them in order without reference.
But glancing at it recently, I’m finally at the point where I would not be able to assemble it like that. Even some short scenes I was slightly off about the order of! Road to recovery…
I think all of us who’ve taken a crack at grading the film know this struggle lol
I have to force myself to try and let my mind go blank watching it otherwise I’m just thinking too much about minute details.
