I haven't seen the original, so we're talking about the remake here. Specifically what I like about it is how as something is being described, the scene will cut to what they're describing, moving the plot along at a nice, fast clip. Does that make sense? Now that I've typed it out it really doesn't sound all that helpful. Surely this style has a name (does anyone know what it's called?--someone help me out here).
Anyway, I would like more movies that tell their story in a smilar way. Clearly the style lends itself well to heist plots, but maybe not necessarily. (And The Sting, while it's awesome and has those similar "gotcha, this was our plan all along!" plot twists that Ocean's 11 has, it doesn't set up the story in the same way.)
And, sorry. This question didn't come out like I was hoping it would. I have a very clear picture in my head of what I'm looking for, but I can't seem to verbalize it. Maybe it's just one of those you know it when you see it things.
