Cinephilic YouTube channel Cinefix has created a narrated supercut of what it considers to be the dozen best "long takes" in all of moviedom. Yup, that one's in there. And that one. That one too. Not that one from that movie, the other one. And that one, surprisingly, is not.

Check out the video below, but don't forget to visit the YouTube page for the (for once) worthwhile comments, which include guesses and discussion regarding the three films in Cinefix's list that are actually cheats — yup, three of these shots actually contain separate shots stitched together.
