Podcast: Atonement / Top 3 Long Takes in Film – Episode 378

Podcast: Atonement / Top 3 Long Takes in Film – Episode 378

This week’s episode is brought to you by Livestream for the Cure. Please be sure to donate and tune in later on in May!

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discuss Joe Wright’s 2007 masterpiece Atonement and our Top 3 long takes in film! Plus, a few thoughts on some films we’ve recently seen in quarantine.

This week was supposed to originally see the release of Wright’s latest film The Woman in the Window, however it has obviously been pushed back due to COVID-19. Of course, that didn’t stop us from looking into another Wright film, and if you ask us it’s the right film. Okay, that was a dumb play on words, but we do love Atonement and we had a great time talking about on the show.

On that note, check out this week’s show and let us know what you think in the comment section. Thanks for listening and for supporting the InSession Film Podcast!

As we’ve done the last month or so, we’ve been catching up with films during quarantine and wanted to chime in with our thoughts on said films. This week we talked about The Living Daylights, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and Network.

Top 3 Long Takes in Film (1:21:14)
One of the most talked about scenes in Atonement is the highly regarded Dunkirk sequence, which is one long take and absolutely sublime. Using that as transpiration, we thought it would be fun to talk about the best long takes in film and why they’re so alluring. There are obviously many great sequences to consider, so it was challenging, but very rewarding to talk about. That said, what would be your Top 3?
