The Godfather (1972)
Interesting thing about this scene is that in building the suspense, i wished that I had just some shots of empty corridors so i could play the sound of footsteps coming and build the suspense. But i was so rushed and so frightened of not getting the scene in time, that I focused just on getting the real hardcore scenes, the meat, so to speak, of Al in the corridors. and I didn’t shoot any shots of just the empty corridors. And so my friend, George Lucas, went through the footage, and he said, ‘Well, you gotta have, to build suspense, you gotta have some empty corridors.’ And so what we did is we looked through all the shots, and after I had said ‘Cut’, there would be maybe, a few feet of just empty corridor, and we took thse, and you’ll see later in the sequence when you cut to an empty corridor, those are just the little ends of shots that happened to be after the actor walked out of the frame - there was a little piece. So advice to directors, very often the most important stuff that you get, you’ll shoot and then you’ll wish you had gotten the so-called easy, unimportant things. So always get those unimportant things, cause they’re as valuable as the important things. - Francis Ford Coppola

A film by Martin Scorsese
Taxi Driver (1976)
Director: Martin Scorsese
Screenplay: Paul Schrader
Cinematography: Michael Chapman
Music: Bernard Herrmann.
"This deeply disturbing drama, which examines alienation in urban society by combining elements of film noir, the Western, and horror movies. established Martin Scorsese as a major figure in world film and made Robert De Niro a star. De Biro immerses himself in the complex character. Scorsese presents an apocalyptic view of the city, with steam hissing out of the streets, incessant traffic noise, and wailing sirens. This is contrasted with the haunting score by Bernard Herrmann (his last).”- Ronald Bergan, The Film Book, 2011.
