The Best Long Takes in Film History

The Long Take- The Greatest Long Tracking Shots in Cinema

One of the ways that film directors can show their prowess with the camera is to shoot a complicated scene using just one take of the camera, and to keep it rolling for several minutes.

Daily Film Dose has complied a list of the greatest long tracking shots. The usual suspects are here, such as Touch of Evil , Raging Bull and Godard's Week End. There are also a lot of obscure, foreign and new listings too, such as: Old Boy, Children of Men, Russian Ark and I Am Cuba.

Even better, there are links for most of these movies so you can watch these awesome shots in Youtube.
