Exclamation Lengthy homages in a film (from another film)

I came across a remarkably long shot for shot, same tempo, same lighting (but totally redone) copy of a segment from Tarkovsky's Andrei Rublev (1966) (near 0:44-0:45 minutes, wintertime crucifixion, very well known and heretical) lovingly repeated in a series adaptation of 'Karamazov brothers' (2008) near the end of the 8th episode. It is almost poetic and definitely deliberate.

Indirect homages can in some ways be more interesting (not counting parodies).
Mike Leigh's film Mr. Turner, for example, recreates paintings as cinema backgrounds.
Michaël Dacheux's film Love Blooms (L'amour debout) pays homage to Jean Eustache's Virgin of Pessac
by inviting back Françoise Lebrun herself (now considerably older, of course).

The "Odessa Steps" scene in Eisenstein's 1925 movie Battleship Potemkin was borrowed for the train station shootout in Brian de Palma's 1987 fantasy movie The Untouchables. When the latter film came out, I noticed that a number of reviewers went on at some length about the train station shootout, but never mentioned the "Odessa steps."

Of course, many scenes in High Anxiety, starting with the opening scene, were sendups of scenes in Alfred Hitchcock movies.

In the 2000's version of the Twilight Zone series, Beauty Is In The Eye Of The Beholder is a full recreation of the original.

I think it could be a fun thread.

There is an old nice live growing database of sampling in music. Of course we won't ever reach that sort of volume, but we can try.
