    I saw 1917 last night and thought it was tremendous. Interested in your thoughts on the choice to basically film a "continuous" scene. (with the exception of when he fell down the stairs in the house and blacked out)

    Anyway, I loved the cinematography. The continuous shoot was amazing especially at the beginning as they trudge through the maze of trenches to get to the General and find out their orders.

    Loved the symmetry of the movie starting with Will sleeping against a tree, in a field of grass and wildflowers, and it ending with the same.

    @Jayson if you are out there and have seen this movie, I would love your thoughts/expert insight on the "continuous shoot" decision

    I haven't seen it (and probably won't while it's in theaters - I actually hate theaters; SW is the only thing I go watch), but as soon as I do, I'll chime in. Even though normally I wouldn't likely watch a war film or drama (I go for adventure, pulp, and philosophical stuff), I'm going to have to make an exception and dig in, because every cinephile I know has asked me.

    Cheers,
    Jayson
