The main problem is that Greengrass just has the camera shaking a bunch to create strong tension. In the editing room, the editor watches the clips multiple times, which causes his eyes to get used to it and he knows what's going to happen next and can understand what's going on, so he edits those clips together, knowing what happens. First-time viewers then have no clue what the hell is going on since they haven't seen the footage before, but the editor has and is used to it.

Good points Jack Caine.

This use of filming and editing is one of the reasons I don't even want to see most blockbusters and action movies anymore (that's when you start realize you're becoming an old fart who says things "they don't make them like they used to, that was better when I was young"')

Someone needs to warn the D-man about how audiences REALLY feel about his kind of shooting.

By "someone" I mean Jox... :|

Yeah, I really hope more movie makers are encouraged by the great success and warm reception of No Country For Old Men. What a relief among all this shaky cutting fests.

I give him my opinions whenever we have these kinds of conversation. D is still trying things out and looking for his own style in a way. What I get from him is that he definitely has old-school tastes but also wants to be modern so that's his work is on the page as well so it's about finding the good compromise...
