Tom Cruise Runs — Supercut

Posted on August 1, 2015 at 10:17 pm

I love this supercut of Tom Cruise’s best running scenes, first because it shows the range of films he’s worked in over the decades, and the different ways different directors and cinematographers shoot the scenes (and some similarities), and because I enjoy watching Cruise, but most of all because this is such a gorgeous love letter to the movies.  It is a beautiful little movie on its own.
