Over the course of a sixty-year career, Dede Allen dispensed with many of the conventions of editing that make old movies glacially slow to contemporary eyes. She also made innovations that changed film forever. Since her death last month, I’ve been re-watching films she edited–“Bonnie and Clyde,” “Reds,” “Little Big Man,” “Serpico,” “Dog Day Afternoon” and “Wonder Boys,” among others. A more detailed essay can be found in my Pages.
