Sigh. I really wanted this to work for me, but watching this it just doesn’t. At least not for me. The costumes are glaring in their difference, and the emotions, the intimacy is also glaring. It’s obvious that the scenes in Tatooine take place AFTER the library scene because of how they act. They’ve clearly already expressed their feelings for one another, admitted there is something there because of the openness with how they speak to each other. There’s a stiffness and hesitancy with which Padme treats Anakin in the library that is just not there at all in the Tatooine scene.
As for Anakin on the Dark Path, I think the fact that he’s already broken one rule (choosing to kiss Padme, and openly tell her he wants to be with her/lie about it) is what starts him on that path which leads to what happens on Tatooine.
I hope this works for others though. The editing is fantastic, I will say though. It looks utterly seamless.
