Most Beautiful Film You've Ever Seen?
« on: June 02, 2012, 02:01:33 AM »
I know I may get some kind of flack for mine for those who've seen it but the film Cashback (2006) I feel is the most beautiful film I've ever seen. And, I'm not referring to the nudity but the whole of the film.

Beautiful as in visually beautiful?

Old style classics

Lawrence of Arabia
Barry Lyndon


The Duelists  ....Ridley Scotts first was quite beautiful (almost an art film considering the mainstream harrowing tale it told)

for stunning compositions

Seven Samurai ... Akira Kurosawa
or just great visuals
Ran  ....ditto

For sci-fi twist

Brazil

 for post music video aesthetic 

The Cell  ...J'lo's journey into the mind of a serial killer  by Indian Director  Tarsem Singh (also did visual treat The Fall)

for visual overload in a <fantastic movie

What Dreams May Come


and of course the films that are purely for the visuals Koyanisquatsi, Baraka etc

and for endless shades of green (long before modern colour painted movies like Crouching Dragon etc)

A Private Function  ...dir Malcolm Mowbray

that also reminds me of the pastels of Edward Scissorhands

actually it's a visual medium and depending on the definition there are very very many that answer the OP

DeadMan
The Big Blue
City Of Lost Children
Dick Tracey
O Brother Where Art Thou
Sin City
Excalibur
12 Monkeys
The Piano
Night Of The Hunter
Nosferatu

bloody hell don't get me started ;)

obviously I enjoyed this topic Nam +1

Yes I would say "What Dreams may Come" is visually beautiful.

I might also add the Iranian film "Turtles Can Fly:. Though the movie itself is just ojay, the message, I feel, is quite beautiful.

I didn't really care for The Seventh Seal.
