After reading all 71 comments with suggestions (phew!), I decided on 10 more movies that I love for the visuals that were either forgotten in the first post, or just came second best. But I will mention that if I were to redo the first list, The Fall would have been at the top as it gets my vote for best visuals ever in a movie. So, without further ado, here are 10 more movies I (and some of you) love for the visuals.
It does not hurt that Lee Pace is smokin’ hot in this movie.
This was the most suggested movie that I didn’t include, and I didn’t include it because I feel that A Very Long Engagement is more visual stunning, while this one I love the story more (I didn’t want to include two movies by the same director.) BUT! It is visually moving, so it should be included.
The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford
When I saw this movie in the theater, I was gripping my seat half the time because I thought it was so stunning. I felt like I was the only person I knew who loved it, so I was glad to hear some of you did as well.
Lost in Translation:
The only movie I love Scarlett Johansson in.
Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind:
I mentioned it was hard to choose between The Science of Sleep and this one, but you’re right, this is just too amazing to leave off.
Romeo & Juliet: (baz luhrmann version)
No laughing. This movie changed the way I looked at movies when I was a teenager, and made me realize that I needed to do everything in my power to marry Leonardo DiCaprio. It’s such an awesome version of the story, I wish I could have found better screen grabs.
The Talented Mr Ripley:
This movie is looooong and the story isn’t perfect, but I just want to crawl inside and live in it. Minus the murder and such.
The Diving Bell and the Butterfly:
Thank you everyone for your comments on the first post, I’m excited to watch some of the movies you suggested that I haven’t seen!
UPDATE: ha! I can’t believe I was the first to notice there’s only 9 here. Forgot this one:
Breakfast at Tiffany’s:
