Thank you for the kind words, everyone! I'm honoured that my entry has gotten the response it has. I wasn't very pleased with the results (especially in terms of editing and sound design) so it's really nice to see that people like it. I'm glad to see people like the cinematography and lighting, since those are areas I really focused on (hahaha) during production. I feel like I've learned a lot about these things in the past year and it was really nice to be able to put them into practice.
Spoiler (highlight to read)In the last scene where Wilson is shot by Bishop, there is no flash of light or movement from Bishop's gun whatsoever. Although I understand this was done to keep us wondering who fired the shot, it was somewhat unrealistic.
Spoiler (highlight to read)I actually intended for the shot to happen just as the frame cuts from Wilson's gun to the wide shot, though I think my editing program messed it up slightly, hence the delay. Also, none of the guns in this film have flares, though I did use a light for a few.

I have to say now, the elevator death made me think of Drive.
Interesting that you mention it--I actually watched the first 40 or so minutes of Drive shortly before BRAWL, though I didn't get around to finishing it until tonight (the rest of my family got bored and wanted to watch some action movie.... ). I do remember really liking the cinematography and overall style, so maybe that did influence it somewhat.
