BOILING POINT: THE NEW KING OF ONE-TAKE
Written by Pate Narawa on January 11, 2022
One of the hardest things to do is to shoot a “oner” or one-take with no cuts. Usually, directors would try and hide their cuts creatively with a wipe or something else to make it look like a “oner”.
Daredevil was able to successfully do this in its first season with that hallway fight scene.
Another film that was able to make it look like a single take but utilised cuts cleverly was 1917.
Then you have Stephen Graham in his latest movie Boiling Point which has raised the bar and pretty much tossed it out. Boiling Point, the whole film is a one-shot, yes, the whole film is a oner.
Check out the trailer for Boiling Point:
Now I just have to try and figure out how to watch this film.
