Great perceptive overview of innovative, creative editing techniques for film spanning many decades and countries. SABOTAGE, the 1930's Alfred Hitchcock BW film, a story about a dutiful wife suspecting her husband is a secret mad bomber in London, really illustrated how certain cuts can really draw the audience into the what the characters are going through. The finale dinner scene where the wife is cutting the dinner meat for her husband had elevated suspense, suspicion, and made the chilling ending pop! Numerous other films sited for great editing which enhanced their cinema storytelling were Klute, The Pawnbroker, Hunger, Silver Linings Playbook, Magic Mike, and Don't Look Back. 5 Stars!
