-Camera starts steady, maybe low to the ground
-Camera follows action that invades the frame

Children of Men comes to mind, because it has some of my favorite cinematography of any recent film. The long takes Cuaron uses in the movie are inspiring because they carry the viewer through huge action scenes seamlessly. Can't wait to try it out on the Bolex.
