Great Long Tracking Shots

I love, love, love posts like this: The Greatest Long Tracking Shots in Cinema. Includes clips from Touch of Evil, Goodfellas, Boogie Nights, Magnolia, Children of Men, and many others.


How the heck can you have a list like this and not have Hitchcock's Rope?

1. The long tracking shot is becoming a showy cliche. Having it after "The Player" is like having a concert film after "Spinal Tap."

2. Nonetheless, I'll go with one of the commenters in the post and wonder why there's no love for Linklater.
