Top 10 Long Take Scenes of All Time (Video Edition)

As directors move away from celluloid to digital filmmaking, some of the greatest camera tricks of all time are easily accomplished via technology. Back in the day, if you wanted a long tracking shot, you actually needed to build track to make it happen. When you see one of these shots, it takes your brain some time to register just how intricate the creation of it would be. Sometimes you have to watch it more than once to soak it all in. In the history of film there have been countless amazing single/extended/tracking shots but here are our favorites. If you have another great scene that didn't make the cut, feel free to add it to the Talk Backs below.

Sooooo.....

You guys basically went and recycled the exact same article topic that IGN did about a week ago? Oh wait, yours is a video edition, and half of them are movies that were mentioned in the comments section, while the other half is the SAME FUCKING MOVIES, so it's totally different, right? RIGHT? Here's the link to the original article. [link]

Laziness in journalism, has achieved a whole new level. (...or is this considered, in some way, plagiarism??...hmmm).

You know this sequence is great when your mom makes you watch this scene as a young kid

My mom loves Goodfellas, I remember when I was really really young, she insisted I watch this famous sequence and see how it was shot. Watching sequences like this is how I fell in love with movies and filmmaking. Solid list!

Good list. I also love the 7 minute opening shot/gunfight from Johnnie To's Breaking News: [link]

And I think Russian Ark qualifies for this too.

I guess my idea of a take and yours are different, to me one take is one shot unbroken, with no cuts, wipes, transitions. Several of these takes had edits.
