jump cut

jump cut
  an abrupt, disorienting transitional device in the middle of a continuous shot in which the action is noticeably advanced in time and/or cut between two similar scenes, either done accidentally (a technical flaw or the result of bad editing) or purposefully (to create discontinuity for artistic effect); also contrast with an ellipsis and match cut
  Example: in Don't Look Now (1973), the director Nicolas Roeg cuts from the wife's scream on seeing her dead daughter to the drill her husband is using in his work on the church in Venice - a sound match and cut; in Deconstructing Harry (1997), jump cuts indicate the protagonist's fractured, distracted mind; also, the car ride with the camera behind Jean Seberg in Godard's New Wave film Breathless (1960, Fr.)
