You thought you knew how much Wes Anderson likes centered shots. But did you really know? (Spoiler: It’s a lot.)
If you haven’t already seen this video, stop everything you’re doing and watch it now. It doesn’t stick totally true to the inspiration, the 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die book edited by Steven Jay Schneider (at least, if Sucker Punch is in that book, it has more problems than I feared), but it’s an incredible sensory assault. It apparently took a year to edit. I believe it. This is one of the most intricate, mind-boggling, perfectly planned and timed supercuts I’ve ever seen. Recommend you watch it in HD and full-screen.

I bet this was difficult to do. Heck, just riding a motorcycle onto the top of a train in that game is difficult. I tried. Many times.
I‘m a big fan of unbroken steadicam shots, and this one may be short (50 seconds), but it’s pretty awesome nonetheless. Definitely worth your less-than-a-minute. There’s also a making of video here, showing the quick stage changes and steadicam movement.
