Watch a Supercut of Spike Lee's Crazy, Free-Floating Dolly Shots
Often supercuts have a way of making you cringe and cutting, say, a TV series or career down to size. But this supercut that stitches together all of Spike Lee's dolly shots has the opposite effect: it makes us want to go back and watch (or re-watch) some of these films.
Depending on the movie, a dolly shot can feel a little goofy and take you out of the movie. IndieWire notes that one of the shots in "Malcolm X" had that effect on the audience: "When I saw the movie on opening night in 1992, the crowd burst into ironic applause and laughter when that Malcolm X people-mover shot appeared onscreen." But when you put all of these shots together, the effect is sort of gorgeous.
