This film needs it's own thread. Saw it last night. Go see it in the theaters. It's immersive, intense, spectacular, and one of the best films I've seen in a long time.

Discuss.

I'm looking forward to seeing it, but based on some behind the scenes stuff i've seen I'm guessing they are very different in what they are trying to do.

Every time I go see a big "war" type movie, even if it's great and Oscar worthy, I always regret it afterwards because the content is so disturbing to me. I'm going to pass no matter how great it is.

(I'm pretty sure no one else here will share this opinion.)

They shot it for the appearance of being continuous action with no edits (a "oner" as it's called). But logistically it wasn't possible to do a two hour oner with that kind of action. So it was broken down into smaller pieces with the edits "buried" in visual transitions etc.

They did a great "oner" in the first season of True Detective that was shot with the same intent, but they pulled it off and didn't have to use their planned, hidden edits. Breaking Bad also had an amazing one in season 5A (?).

There is nothing wrong with you being you.

As for the movie, friends say you have to see it in a theater.

Is that for sound effects or visualization? I have wide screen and surround sound.

Is this also the effect Inarritu was going for in Birdman?

Same idea, yes. But Birdman relied more on VFX to achieve the stitching while Mendes and Deakins used practical, in camera matches to a greater extent.

The True Detective shot was phenomenal. GoT had a great one during the Battle of Winterfell as well.

Yep. Now that I think about it, the border crossing shot I'm thinking of was in Better Call Saul.

Your work in editing compels me to mention that one of my fellow students that I completed my UCLA freshman Orientation with was the son of a multi-Oscar-nominated film editor.

I just saw it and loved it. I felt it really showed how ugly war - that one in particular - is. As hard as it can be to see some of the horrible things it’s refreshing to see war and killing not being celebrated/romanticized.

It has a nice balance of quiet and loud moments. Each complimenting the other perfectly. And the cast is top notch.

I was able to see the cuts but that’s only because I was looking for them.

Well I'll say this, he should have at least one, as he edited literally the best American film of the past 26 years.

I enjoyed it. There is a technical expertise to directing extended scenes with no edits while maintaining high levels of tension that really has to be seen to be appreciated.

Didn't you have this one in mind: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7TvFv3bAEwY?

Saw 1917 last night in theatre. Amazing, really. I'm a sucker for war movies as is, but this one was something else. Didn't find it comparable to Saving Private Ryan, though, I'd liken it to Dunkirk perhaps. I had the same claustrophobic feeling of being there with the boys when watching that one as well.

I don't think Shawshank was the best film of the past 26 years.

You are wise for understanding why I said 26 and not 25 for a reason. LOL!
