Video: 135 Shots That Will Restore Your Faith in Cinema

Okay so this is basically straight from SlashFilm (who got it via Flavorwire), but it's absolutely worth posting here too. So much of what I really love about movies comes from the feeling I get when I watch a clip like this one.


Another great thing here is the soundrack. Clint Mansell is a genius. So, how many of these shots do you recognise? See a complete list after the jump.

This is all straight from Flavorwire (and in order of appearance). I'm risking embarrassment but being honest, and have therefore marked all the movie's I've actually seen in bold text. Which of the unseens is my biggest disgrace?
