It took a while for me to get into the song, but once I did, it became very interesting. It's definitely an original take on your traditional "blues," which can be off-putting at first. However, the sound grows on you and you learn to appreciate it.
I really liked the song and the concept of the video! A few things that could maybe use improvement are the following: 1) The transition from drama into the song could have been smoother - it was almost startling. 2) Make sure the cuts that make up the punch sequence match on the action. Seems a little choppy and loses a sense of realism. 3) When the two interrogators are shot, it is a little hard to follow. Perhaps have a shot of the gun right before the first one is shot or in between the two getting shot? 4) Maybe have a final message on the typewriter at the end of the video? Could have impact, but also could create a cliché moment.
