Thanks for watching
Get rid of the Olympia... that's a writer's blocking device...
But on a more technical note. How was the monochrome achieved. To me it seemed like the image was far flatter than I like to see B&W. Did the fellow have a tanned face?
There's a shot where he has his fingers to his chin, thinking no doubt... but the fingers look to be a stop higher in value...
If the original film stock was color, and you used simple desaturation in the digital editing portion, I'd recommend looking into a method called 'channel mixing', which to me better represents what 'real(tm)' B&W would do, rather than the simple desaturation. And I also prefer a little more contrast as well.
Shaky cam... especially on 'zoomed in subjects'... I could live without that...
The hot spot on the fellows right (his right) side was a bit distracting.
