* Soviet propaganda film ''Film/{{Earth}}'' is about a farming village that's converting from individual farms to a collective. It includes many close-ups of the products of the earth—fruit on the vine, sunflowers, melons, wheat. These are juxtaposed with close-ups of the peasants, suggesting that they also are part of the land.

* In ''TaxiDriver'', there is a scene where Travis is at a table with some cabbie colleagues, and while the conversation is going on around him, the camera cuts to a slow push into his glass of water with alka-seltzer in it. It's a great way to illustrate his increasing social and emotional isolation.
* As BartonFink slowly loses it in his HellHotel, we get a lot of these showing details of his room. One long, slow zoom right before a particularly nasty scene takes us into the bathroom, up to the sink, and [[BlackComedy down the drain]].

** ''TheThinRedLine''. Body blows up -- cut to blade of grass. Man slowly dying -- cut to birds preening in the trees. Narrator asks "why is nature at war with itself?" -- cut to a crocodile swimming.

* Many examples are silent or musical, many have dialogue, often painful dialogue, going over. ''HighHopes'' by Mike Leigh has quite a few "overlong" shots of doors, an elderly lady's dentures, a series of shots of gravestones, often used to reflect a malaise of the characters.

* In the second ''SisterhoodOfTheTravelingPants'' book, [[TheUnfavorite Tibby]] is taking a college film course for the summer and makes her project a bitter portrait of her mother, tricking her by only asking to interview her when she's busy, so that all the shots she gets are of her mother looking harried and telling her she can't talk right now. The {{Jerkass}}-but-talented kid she's trying to befriend at the college suggests that she add in shots like a patch of dead grass in the yard so that it doesn't "get predictable."

* ''TheBiggestLoser'' often does scenery cutaways as transitions, but in Season 9, episode 17, there was a bizarre close-up of a single wild rose, wet with dew, sandwiched between two of the scenery shots. [[FauxSymbolism The rose had nothing to do with anything]].

* ''Series/TheOfficeUK'' often divides scenes with a still shot of a random office object, such as the water cooler. The same handful of shots are used repeatedly throughout the show.
