If you saw Children of Men early this year then you know how incredible single-shot scenes can be. There were numerous 10-15 minute single-shot scenes in Children of Men that just blew me away. Now Greek first time filmmaker Spiros Stathoulopoulos has made an entire 85 minute movie in one shot. PVC-1 is about a Colombian woman who is taken hostage by terrorists and has an explosive device attached to her neck. The film debuted at Cannes and has been getting a fairly positive response. I know I'll be certainly watching it if it ever makes it to a film festival near me. In the meantime, a trailer has debuted and it looks pretty thrilling.

Citizen Kane, Goodfellas, Hitchcock's Rope, Children of Men, and even this year's upcoming Atonement all have lengthy tracking shots. Will PVC-1 stand up to these cinematic greats?
