A 1995 movie "Nick of Time" with Johnny Depp the most remarkable scene is a production and viewer standpoint is the 35 story ride (technically only 33 floors) in the glass walled elevator, to get the right lighting and not capture the reflections of the crew was a feat according to IMDB.com. One of the things I notice about the film is that it's about a 90 minute film, and the entire plot is supposed to occur in 90 minutes which is unusual for any movie to be done that way and for some reason it feels like it's longer, like hours, yet you don't feel like you are sitting in a movie that long. The plot progresses from each element to the next as if you are right there experiencing the whole thing and somehow there becomes a feeling of gaining more time oddly enough. The Westin Bonaventure Hotel where it was filmed is the largest hotel in Los Angeles and a very unique place to stay, dine, visit just to see the roundness of it's walls and cozy cubicles that feel like they are suspending you above everything, and it's a nice place to relax. official site
I found this effect to be stunning. Take a look at it. It's impossible to do just with reflection but that is the impression it gives so it really bends the mind.

OPINION: Why on earth did they make Nebraska a black & white movie? It's like Blair Witch all over again. Blair Witch destroyed TV and movies. People hated the camera shake, said it made them sick but it was used as a base for the entire plot. For some reason it caught on, became the norm, and now it's in half of every moving image, from commercials, to shows, to movies. Camera shake works only at certain times with certain rare scenes. Today about 90% of camera shake, and quick zoom, is annoying, nauseating, and takes away from the product. I can't stand the show "The Office" as it's inundated with this stupid technique. I think that someday when I become famous I will sit in an interview and shake to mimic this, so the camera doesn't have to just to see the look on their faces.
