Discuss Children of Men

When I first saw this film in the cinema it's continuous one shot set pieces blew my mind.

What other great examples of complex, one shot takes can you think of? What are your fave's?

The opening take of Touch of Evil always comes to mind with this question.

Yeah, that one's probably the daddy.

There was a thread like this, once.
One that sticks in my memory was the end shot of Catch 22. From bed to beach to helicopter.

Cool. Back when they had General Chat. I wish they hadn't got rid of that.

I haven't seen Catch 22, but that sounds good. I need to check it out.

There was a really good long, continuous shot set in Vietnam that I saw recently. In the TV show 'Quarry'. Very Impressive. It's recommended.
