Personal Quote:

Ridley Scott's Black Hawk Down was shot with fifteen cameras. The editing of that film is such a mutilating as war is in general. Yes, shots do run there. But when one watches for example a Kurosawa film where Toshiro Mifune is moving with his sword in one single long shot, viewer can perceive the whole and it feels more believable. I rather aim to clearness than to that I have a million shots.
