On editing

David Bordwell has a post up over at his great blog on some of his favorite edits in films.

Read about it HERE.

It got me thinking about some of my favorites. The scene in Lawrence of Arabia where the match is lit and the head of the match dissolves to the blistering sun of the desert. The opening sequence of Apocalypse Now where the shot uses a split dissolve between Willard on the bed, the jungle and the choppers and then the ceiling fan. Wonderful stuff.

What are some of yours?
