i've always founds innaritu's camera movements rather jarring but his films are well crafted and require a lot of coordination. kudos to him. children of men has much better tracking shots tb h

no 360 rotating shots are absolute fucking garbage and anything that uses it extensively (see any capeshit show) fails to make things look dramatic or intense.

Those are all bad examples.

That whole sequence in TD is built upon the idea of "let's make a "cool epic" handheld tracking shot for the finale of this storyline. That amount of gimmickery removes any focus on the character of Rust because the cinematographer pulls all attention to his camerawork, which should never be done.
Every single time the camera pans through an empty wall in the apartments to show something else would be improved if it was replaced with a simple back to back cut. And all fade to blacks or fast pans to hide the cuts only make it even more obnoxious.
It's entirely screaming "LOOK AT ME, LOOK AT THE CAMERAWORK, DO YOU SEE THIS" while the scene would benefit greatly with a few basic cuts which are in that sequence just filled with countless panning shots of doorways and empty walls just so it remains an "epic" long shot.

Similar things happen in both Birdman or The Revenant. Long takes can be great when used in a few select scenes to emphasize those parts (like in Children of Men) where you don't even notice that they are long takes, but using it in almost every single scene just removes any effect or impact it had and made all those scenes on the same level of dynamics no matter what's happening.
With that many uses of long takes and handheld shots you become too aware of the camera and the camera operating, every pan becomes a crutch which could just be replaced with a simple cut. Yes a long take can provide more tension if used at the right places, but using it in so many scenes no matter of context removes it's effect completely.

Sup Forums understand the true kino is flat lighting, 30fps, soap opera cinematography

It's one uninterrupted take.

Gavin Gray

To elaborate, there were points where they could have edited in cuts, but they trashed that idea when they got the single take.

Wyatt Miller

Except it's rarely planned. Long takes and uninterruptible takes are rarely actually planned to be done but are used when a shot worked because the characters nailed X or Y. Normally there will be multiple cameras doing different shit and they'll then edit it together OR they'll split up the scene. A single long take does not have to be used is what I'm saying, even if it's shot in one long take, it can be split up or edited. But if it went well, why would you?

Remember that John Woo (I think? Or was it Jet Li?) action scene where he goes up the stairs and it's like a 5 min long action sequence with no stops. That was impressive because it could have gone wrong.
