Anger.... subsiding.  But barely.  It's been one hell of a morning.  In the meantime, here's a list of some of the great long tracking shots in film history.   Anything missing?

EDIT:  Quite a bit, actually.  I didn't read the comments on that page, so maybe it's covered there - where's Pulp Fiction (Travolta/Jackson talking about foot massages.... Bruce Willis entering his apartment)? 

Better yet, where is ANY Kubrick film?  There are at least 2 shots in "Clockwork Orange" (the opening pullback, the scene where Malcolm McDowell is being held underwater)... and almost every shot in 2001 is long...

And there's always one long ensemble shot in a Wes Anderson movie (here I'm thinking of the insane shot at the end of "Royal Tenenbaums", which ends in the most beautiful exchange Ben Stiller will ever be a part of).
