* Played with in ''Film/JohnWick''. Wick is fighting an assassin in his hotel room in the [[TruceZone Continental]], when the concierge Charon rings him up. After a few seconds of violence, there's an abrupt cut to the very quiet lobby, with Charon patiently waiting for John to answer, even though he clearly knows what's going on. This happens again before John wins the fight and picks up the phone to hear a notification about noise complaints.
