The Jump Cut. Although usually jarring, I've seen examples (but can't recall the films
) where I've found it effective. Something like this:
MEDIUM CLOSE of villain's face.
BAM! MUSICAL STING.
Jumped to a CLOSE SHOT of villain.
BAM STING again.
Jumped to an XCU!
Worked well, but is this perhaps because of the musical stings accentuating the cuts?
An editor who judiciously used it?
