Hi guys. Question. What screenplay or teleplay has the best scene or scenes in which, say, a secret agent tails/follows a subject on foot? Thanks.

God, come on people. Seriously. Bunch a... never mind. So how about it. I am reading Enemy of State and Bourn Identity for starters.

I have no idea how it was written in the script, but I love this scene from The Defenders, which features Matt Murdock tailing Jessica Jones, only to suddenly realize she's turned the table and is now tailing him. The execution is flawless, IMO.

Say what know? Broke his neck?...

@Lon Can you tell me which episode that is.

The Americans has great tail scenes as well btw.

Edit: nevermind @Lon It is episode 3, it says so under the video when you visit YouTube.

Keaton broke his neck when the water hit him. But he was in such great shape that his neck muscles handled it enough that he never realized it was actually a fracture until years later when a medical exam spotted it.

Commando has a scene of Arnold tailing ... Sully(?)... beating half a dozen rent-a-cops to a pulp... finishing it off by ripping the passenger seat out of a car.

"Remember, Sully, when I promised to kill you last?"
"That's right, Matrix! You did!"
"I lied."

Such a fun flick, like a splattery comic book come to life.
