What is good is continuity editing?


Eyeline matching & the 180 degree rule in dialogue scenes: No Country for Old Men & The Social Network

What is bad continuity editing?

Taken 3 and Bohemian Rhapsody (with analysis).
Non-Continuity editing:

Jump cuts as psychology: Black Narcissus (1947)
Breaking the 180 degree rule for effect: Triangle (2009)
In-class films:

Observing process through various continuity techniques: Voyage of the Galactic Space Dangler (2017) & A Few Stories about a Man (1983)
Classic sitcoms had a hard time breaking the 180 degree rule due to the presence of a live studio audience on one side of the action.
