        I am surprised that the name of Jean-Luc Godard has not come
up in this thread.  Especially considering his relationship with
André Bazin.  And Italian Neorealism has only been mentioned in
        I would also like to point out the difference between a long
take (a shot of considerable length) and a sequence shot (an entire
sequence made of one shot).  For example, the uninterrupted backward
tracking shot in Pasolini's *Mamma Roma* and then lateral tracking
shot (with pans) in Godard's *Weekend* are examples of the long take.
But Welles's *Touch of Evil, * Jancso's *The Red and the White* and
(the entire) *Russian Ark* are sequence shots.   As are the opening
of Anderson's *Boogie Nights,* and the walk through the night club in
Scorsese's *Good Fellas.*
        Finally, thanks to James Monaco for clarifying the difference
between POV and eyeline match.

        Gloria Monti
