Great montage, and the music fits perfectly. I love the character the film has, even with the color balance being off.

FYI, I noticed there's artifacts going from 24 fps film to (I assume) 30 or 60 fps digital. It shows up as ghosting of rapidly moving objects. If you did the conversion yourself (and if you're a perfectionist), you should be able to reconvert it to encode at the film's framerate. Totally optional though. I only noticed it because I was looking so close appreciating the detail the film has.

And your mom's hair is righteous!
