Superman smiling at the camera is probably a break. The vast majority of the others aren't, though.LEARN FILMMAKING -- DIGITAL DOWNLOADS OF GREAT PROGRAMS!

Damn, it may be closer to half of them. I just re-watched the first 1:30, and would say that
(in addition to Superman and Ferris);
Apocalypse Now (maybe)
Fear and Loathing
The Devil’s Advocate
all could qualify. They're not all gonna be as bold or ballsy as Abe Froman and Kal-El…
Remember, they don't have to converse with we the audience to acknowledge that we exist.

I count a very very few (handful or so) that break the wall. The majority are simply P.O.V.

In fact, I will count them and name them for you silly people

The one that was missing:
The Film at the :44 Second Mark (The young man, I know I know it)
The Black and White Film (@ 2:20; but have not seen it and do not know the context; was he looking at someone looking at him?)
The Film at 2:22
I almost said Evil Dead 3, but NO. He is going insane. It works perfectly and is not raping the 4th ness.
Nosferatu (NO NO NO) That is simply brilliance in the context of the scene and character. Genius.
In order the break the dimension, one must really know the context. The P.O.V. is an awesome, and unused technique. I wish we saw more of it.

Easier to do and accepted by audiences in comedies - see "Amelie".
Longest scene - if I remember right - with an actor talking to audience directly in Tarkvsky's "Stalker", wife at the end .... but then, "Stalker" is different in almost all aspects....
