I know this is a gif but a static pic could not convey it. From Wings (1927). Look how smooth this pan in is. Imagine the restrictions of the technology of the time. Of course there have been many many extended shots (Russian Arc, Goodfellas to name two) but at a time where shots tended to be static and quite basic then this must have been simply mindblowing at the time. Each table has it's own little story until it focuses in on the last table, the focus and action around the character inducing a sense of queasiness reflecting the character's drunkenness.

The third table has a lesbian couple; very progressive for the 20's.

Russian Ark , "Night At The Museum"

It's one of those times where knowing how they did the trick makes it more impressive.

Not really.

The Hays Code put a stop to lots of stuff.







In Kurosawa's RAN anything that isn't an action scene could be a painting. The storyboards were.

Bladerunner 2049

While I wasn't a huge fan of the movie, it was beautiful.

Spielberg's Jaws. I always loved the look on Robert Shaw/Quint's face in this scene. The rocking of the boat and the small smile on Quint's face. You never knew what that was about. Was he pleased that they managed to get the barrels on the shark or was he bemused by the fact they almost lost the chance or was it simply "Well now, chief. We just wait and have a drink"

Anyway: Jaws:

The start of "Arrival" (Not to be confused with "The Arrival"):

I wasn't gone on Bladerunner 2048. Thought it was just a bit too cold for me. But I did love Arrival.

I loved the framing of the movie: The rectangular motif that seems to run through it. How the opening shots of Amy Adams' window is so similar to the window through wich they view the aliens, to the whiteboards with all their notes at their command centre.

Maybe I'm just reading too much into it: Don't get me wrong, I don't sit in a cinema stroking my pointy beard . I just like good cinematography: Even a terrible film can look beautiful (Sometimes style-over-substance). But certainly the house window and viewing window similarity must be intentional.
