Following is a list of films and TV shows I reference in the book to illustrate a principle of editing executed at the highest level. These examples have had great influence on my personal editing style. If you watch some, or all, of these films, you’ll be better able to connect them to the ideas in the book. If you can only commit to a couple, study both The Social Network and Moneyball, which execute some of the most important concepts.
