Timecode is an interesting effort by Mike Figgis, inventor of the Fig Rig (anyone ever use one?). Amazingly well executed. The commentary is even more interesting, as they talk about the coordination that went into shooting with four DVCAM cameras in real time, hiding microphones in plants and all sorts of creative approaches to getting material without stopping.

Along the same lines is Russian Ark. Filmed with thousands of extras in period costumes also in real time it is an amazingly complex visual achievement, albeit hard to follow.
