The Graduate is brilliant and funny in so many ways. And it's the first movie I've ever seen where I actually sat back and thought: "Wow. That was an amazing shot. Incredible."
Here's the scene: Benjamin is telling Elaine the truth before Mrs. Robinson can. He says, "Remember that older woman? Well, it wasn't just any woman." Then Mrs. Robinson opens the door, and Elaine turns around. She looks back at Benjamin, who has a funny look on his face. At first, Elaine is blurry, but slowly she comes into focus.
At just about the speed it takes her to figure out what the look on Benjamin's face means.
