    The title character played by Michael Cera in the 2010 film Scott Pilgrim Vs.

    The World is a bewildered young man in a constant state of flux.

    Fittingly, director Edgar Wright pays extra attention to the transitions between the scenes in this movie, transporting his viewers from location to location and moment to moment in ways that are surprising, clever, witty, and even disorienting.

    Video essayist Evan “The Nerdwriter” Puschak took notice of this and pays tribute to Wright in a new YouTube video called “Scott Pilgrim: Make Your Transitions Count.” The unorthodox transitions used in Scott Pilgrim are not simply show-offy or self-consciously clever, Puschak argues.

    Instead, they serve the material and help viewers understand the title character’s mindset.
