In film making, a long take or oner is an uninterrupted shot in a film which lasts much longer than the conventional editing pace either of the film itself or of films in general, usually lasting several minutes. Long takes of a sequence filmed in one shot without any editing are rare in films. Let us pay tribute to them with a list of some of the best. This list will continue to be updated. Note that we will include scenes that appear to be long takes even though they may be cut together (e.g. Birdman).
