** There are two long takes in ''Film/CitizenKane''. It was the first time it had ever been done for narrative purposes rather than technical limitations. At the time, no one had ever thought to do it. As a newbie to film making, Welles didn't know that, and impressed everyone by pulling it off.

Called a "{{long take}}", this is one very long, uninterrupted shot on camera. The camera moves, the actors move, things happen, the camera keeps shooting. Difficult. Expensive. Rarely makes it out of the editing room intact. It's also an expensive pain in the ass on film cameras, many of which hold no more than 5 minutes (if that) of film for a shot. A screwup means a lot more than just a reshoot. But when done ''right''... it can be hailed as a directorial triumph. And just plain awesome.

* Creator/BrianDePalma's ''Film/RaisingCain'', ''Film/SnakeEyes'', and ''Bonfire of the Vanities''. ''Snake Eyes'' deserves special mention for both its length and complexity.

* Propaganda pic ''I Am Cuba'' has some incredibly long takes filmed from the back of moving cars, and in one, which follows the coffin of a dead student through crowded streets, the camera goes up the sides of a building, through the top floor, and then out again along a balcony...[[spoiler:It was done by having the camera passed along a 'bucket line' of volunteers!]]

* The ''Series/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'' episode "Charlie Work" features a seven minute-long sequence with the appearance of one shot following Charlie as he takes the health inspector around the bar and orchestrates the other characters to make the building seem up to code.

* The ''Series/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'' episode "Charlie Work" features a seven minute-long sequence with the appearance of one shot following Charlie as he takes the health inspector around the bar and orchestrates the other characters to make the building seem up to code. There's some very seamless trickery to combine the footage together, as the Paddy Pub's interior set is not in the same location as its exterior.

* In the forgotten comedy ''The Crew'', the movie has a rather clever homage to the ''Goodfellas'' oner; the film's four lead aging gangsters try to get in to a crowded diner for an early-bird special, and are led through the back of the kitchen for a good minute, Scorcese-style. Only instead of being led to a table, the manager leads them to the back alley exit and shuts the door behind them.

* The film ''Film/DeathSentence'' has one which follows Kevin Bacon's character chasing a {{mook}} through several floors of a parking complex.

* The film ''Film/DeathSentence'' has one which follows Kevin Bacon's character chasing a {{mook}} through several floors of a parking complex. As it was a handheld camera that covered a lot of distance both horizontally and vertically, it was literally handed off from one cameraman to another through the duration of the sequence.
