Another interesting fact is, that the movie hardly has any A-B-A-B intercutting of opposing shots of two actors (the only instance I remember is the early pot smoking scene with.
Holy shit. I didn't even notice that at the time, but thinking back, you're absolutely right. It was nearly pitch black at the beginning of that take, and by the end of it the sun was shining brightly.
Unbelievable. And while I'm certain the seamless edits were numerous, you never, ever
noticed them; it always felt like one smooth take. The camera never did anything impossible, like go through a closed window or show things from an impossible angle; it was always made to feel as if you were running around seeing everything for yourself. It was a big part of what made the movie work.
I really want to see it again now. And if it comes out in high definition, maybe I'll even talk myself into an HD-DVD player to match. It's only $200, after all.
