The career of Paul Thomas Andreson in five shots

Wednesday, January 14, 2015

A video essay on the evolution of the career of film maker Paul Thomas Anderson up to his film The Master, by giving an analysis of five exemplary long steadicam shots from his first five feature films, courtesy of film critic Kevin B. Lee.

Here's what Paul Thomas Anderson said during an interview for his upcoming picture Inherent Vice, in relation to his long steady cam shots:
My dad used to always watch movies with me. I wouldn't notice edits when I was a kid, but he would say, "Look at that. No cuts." Or he would say, if something was being cut, he would snap his fingers and go, "Good cut. Good cut." It's so funny: The other morning, my daughter and I were at my mom's house. Turner Classic Movies was on and they were playing "That's Entertainment." There was a long shot, and my mom just said, "No cuts!" My daughter realized, in that moment, that we sound exactly the same. I've watched things with my daughter, and I'm like, "Look at that, no cuts." It's like a fucking disease in our family. I don't know what it is or where we got this from, but it's like, what the fuck? What a weird family. We sit around and talk about "no cuts."
