Ten Great Long Takes

Publish date:

Fandor's Michael Pattison lists ten more obscure examples of great cinematic long takes (you won't find Touch of Evil or Children of Men on this list).

He writes, "There’s always something special about a great long-take. Though it can be as routinized as any other formal device, the long-take retains, in the right hands, an exhilarating appeal: it intensifies time by making us feel it, heightening the incidents unfolding within the frame. Framing is also to do with space: a long-take orients us in a filmic world in a way that’s very distinct from montage. While the latter assembles space brick-by-brick, a long-take allows us to see it more fully, and less segmented, as a lived-in locale."
