This video from Jim Emerson at indieWire’s Press Play blog breaks down the – let’s not mince words here – sloppy filmaking in the truck chase scene in The Dark Knight. This is a must-watch for a better understanding of what people really mean when they say that they can’t follow what's happening in an action sequence.
Fair warning: you can’t un-see this.
And oh yay part 2 just posted here.
(Update: fixed the links. I originally linked to the scene without commentary.)
Comments? I don’t do open comments. Life is too short.
