Please rate my showreel

Ive just my first showreel from most of the work ive done as a student.
id really appreciate some feedback. namely with the way i edited it really, but also what shots i could possibly lose, if theres any i could draw out etc.
and finally am i likely to find any work (paid or unpaid) off the back of this?
go on, be honest!

There were several shots from the first section with the old man that looked over-lit to me, namely the CUs of him in bed. I'd also lose the second half of the last shot of the servant going up the stairs. That will make that whole section look better.
If you want to sell yourself as a documentary DP and a narrative DP, that's fine, but I'd split your work into a documentary reel and a narrative reel. If I'm looking for a DP for a narrative, I don't care that you can also shoot documentaries (or vice versa).

Oh, and Mat is right, get rid of the documentary stuff and/or put together a separate reel for that. It was a bit jarring. You go from a nice filmic aesthetic to "video".
Just my humble 2 cents worth...
