Listverse Talks About Editing

23 12 2007

The List Universe has a list of what they consider the Top 10 Best Film Editing Sequences.  The films they are culled from are, in the order they present them:

  1. The Conversation
  2. The Insider
  3. Saving Private Ryan
  4. Raging Bull
  5. The Battleship Potemkin
  6. 12 Angry Men
  7. Silence of the Lambs
  8. One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest
  9. Platoon
  10. City of God

I can’t say that there’s anything wrong with this list, other than it’s very Hollywood centric bent.  Still, I think there are probably a lot of other scenes we’d put on a list.  What are your favorite edited scenes (you are allowed to say the cut from the bone to the spaceship in 2001, even though that’s only one edit).

The cut from Lawrence of Arabia where he strikes the match and the fire dissolves to the sun has always been one of my favorites. Also, the ceiling fan in the beinning of Apocolypse Now.
