Rush Hour (1970)
This is a great example of a deep-focused, time-lapsed film which i totally adore. One cannot deny that this is a beautiful 3 minute short film.
From my notebook:
Theo Angelopoulus in his Eternity and a Day (1998) uses deep focus extensively. Is it symptomatic that all contemplative films has establish somewhat an extensive usage of this cinematic device? One can note also that in Bela Tarr's Satantango (1994) there is also an indiscreet usage of the device. Is it possible that the two major components of a contemplative film are, one, the extensive usage of deep focus and two, the duration of a long shot?
