While HBO’s newest hit drama, True Detective, has gained a reputation as a slow-burning character study through its first three episodes, the fourth episode, entitled “Who Goes There,” blew the lid off that label entirely, providing viewers with an action sequence that ranks among the best to ever be filmed for either television or film. At the heart of the much talked-about action sequence was a six-minute one-shot — a single take without any cuts or edits — that put viewers alongside the protagonist during a heist gone wrong and his later escape, all in real time.
Even for viewers who have come to appreciate True Detective’s slow and deliberate style of storytelling, “Who Goes There” proved that writer Nic Pizzolatto and director Cary Joji Fukunaga — who directed all eight episodes of the series — have their heart set on further blurring the line between television and film as the series roars toward the finish line. And with actors Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson providing performances almost assured to score Emmys this year, the fourth episode of the series proved just how powerful careful character work can be in an extended format, especially when the story kicks into high gear.
One of the most famous and often-studied one-shots in film history, Orson Welles starts off his 1958 crime thriller Touch of Evil with a three-minute, 20-second tracking shot that traces the path of a bomb in the trunk of a car through the streets of the U.S.-Mexico border. As the car slowly moves through the busy border town, the pace of the vehicle matches up with our protagonists, Miguel “Mike” Vargas (Charlton Heston) and Susie (Janet Leigh), as they make small talk and the audience is introduced to them.
But as viewers, we’re always aware that the explosive-rigged car is close behind, finally exploding just as it crosses the border. With complicated camera moves that include rising above the border town and dropping down to street level, the take is just as impressive today as it ever was — an amazing feat given the constraints of large, heavy camera equipment in 1958.

A marriage is not about dating each other for a year or two. It is about spending the rest of your life together. To share each other's life as it comes, one needs to be patient and have a very strong bond. Only then would one be able to pull off something as intricate as marriage. With the divorce rate on a rise, it is imperative that people fear about them getting separated too. But one must overcome the fear and work towards making everything work beautifully. Here are five myths about marriage that you thought were true but actually are not:
Having a baby solves every problem
This is probably the most popular statement and the most senseless way of trying to strengthen a fading relationship. A baby is a new entity altogether. Once you plan to have a baby, your next few years are all about him and his growth. Most definitely if you have a baby, you may be able to divert your mind from marriage issues, but conceiving, delivering and raising a kid has its own set of problems. Unless you have a very strong bond, you may completely ruin another life as well.
