Cinefix neglects to mention the most important piece of character delineation in that shot from "Ida": Wanda is resolute. The manner in which she maneuvers in this scene, along with the action at the end of the scene, suggests that she made her decision in the previous scene and all that was left was the execution of it. This should turn the focus, in retrospect, on to the more minor actions: What is she smoking? What is she drinking? Why has she turned the music up? What is that music? Why did she put her coat on? All of these details combine to form a rich performance and, ultimately, a rich cinematic experience.

The over-insistent voiceover is unbearable to listen to.

Chigurh looking at his shoe tip and walking off wasn't an uneventful shot. In an earlier scene, Chigurh is seen wiping off blood from the tip of his shoe after killing someone. It shows that he likes to keep his shoes clean. The audience who pay attention can connect the dots and come to a conclusion that the same thing happened inside the house.

All movies with long cuts, silence and/or rain give me a giant woody.

Honestly, I interpreted that first shot way different then what was explained.
I've never seen the movie, but pretty much the second she opened the window I guessed she was going to jump. So for me, instead of it being a moment of trying to figure out what was going on, followed by a big shock, it became this horrible, drawn-out moment of suspense, wondering if my assumption was correct and waiting to see if this terrible thing really was about to happen.

Hold on, was the open window not supposed to be obvious?

when it comes to No Country For Old Men. They dont show her being killed because it is irrelevant. Wether he let her live or killed her, she forced him to break his rule and ignore the coin. later, when two boys help him, he refuses to let them help him without paying the boys. he cant face the realisation that there are good people, let alone that anyone would turn down money and help someone for free. the last moments of the film is Anton's worldview crumbling, just like how the sheriffs worldview is crumbling in the opposite direction. anton and the sheriff are reflections of eachother, two old men, both facing the reality that the world is changing.

David Lowery's "A Ghost Story" has so many anxiety-inducing long holds. It's amazing.

Probably the vide came out before it happened, but another Game of Thrones cut I will remember for decades is the scene of Samwell curing Ser Jorah. It's a disgusting yet incredible cut, brilliant.
