God's Eye View

I've had this saved in my Vimeo favourites for ages, and I keep going back to it. Editor Brian Carroll has ploughed through the history of cinema and created this incredible montage of nothing but "god's eye view" shots. It's hard to put my finger on what's so magical about this, but together, the shots seem to be representing different parts of a shared world. It kind of looks like a trailer for an incredible video game, like the original Grand Theft Auto but with incredible graphics and cinematography. Could an entire film be shot like this? Or would it get tiresome after a few minutes? I'd love to see someone try.
