Did You Know?
The reason why there are so many long takes in the movie, according to Brad Jones
, is because many of the songs on the movie's soundtrack were actually played during the filming of the scenes, as opposed to being added in during post production. See more
All of the songs on the soundtrack, except for three, were not in existence at the time the film takes place. The film takes place on the night of August 7 and morning of August 8, 1973. Only the songs "Love or Let Me Be Lonely" (Friends of Distinction, 1970), "Backstabbers" (O'Jays, 1972), and "Love Train" (O'Jays, 1972) could have been heard at that time. See more
