The Invisible Cut: Tim Squyres and Bobbie O'Steen talk about the editing...







When director Robert Altman made “Gosford Park” he had 55 days to shoot a film involving 58 actors, who were often in group scenes.

There was no time to get all the eye lines right or have the action to match from shot to shot – and no two takes were ever the same.
