I'd say gravity. Just looks gorgeous.
Ratatouille & Wall-E
A Bout de Souffle
Worth a mention here?
Badlands is my favourite, but I think Days of Heaven and The New World might top it visually.
Vertigo by Hitchcock is up there too.
I'd probably lean towards The New World but any of the above.
Pride & Prejudice was absolutely beautiful, the colours and the scenes of the peak district. The tv looked like a painting in my living room at times.
Coco before Chanel looked good on the telly too
And obviously Samsara
Brideshead revisited looks beautiful all the time
not the tv series
and so far, I could also have picked it for every other one. But not sure about this one... you're going to have to give reasons
I thought the film was alright but the visuals were absolutely stunning
also I love just how incredibly difficult these shots must have been to pull off at the time:
I should also have mentioned Night Of The Hunter, which you could pause at pretty much any moment and find a truly stunning image. Kuroneko, too, especially in the latter stages.
Would have to agree re Gravity too. Never seen anything like it. Those that skipped it at the cinema really missed something. A mate of mine downloaded it and watched it on his laptop before pronouncing it 'crap', fool.
Wong Kar Wai/Christopher Doyle for this. In The Mood For Love, Chungking Express... every shot is like a photograph etc. etc.
Whatta movie :)
they have moments of sheer brilliance, and moments of 'we don't have any idea what we're doing but fuck it'
is done to dazzling, disorientating effect.
Of course they're guilty of sometimes opting for style over substance - but this thread is solely about stuff that is visually stunning. Fits the brief, chief.
Brick looked good
Sunshine, possibly even 28 Days Later
for it`s hallucinatory, hypnotic and altered state qualities
The Fountain is beautiful looking film as well
Or The Thin Red Line
has some pretty amazing landscapes & stuff
you can visually stun anyone with landscapes
a daily affliction
I didn't much care for the story but what a 3 Michelin Star 21-course tasting menu of a visual feast it was. Even better than Gravity imo.
Also love: The Red Shoes, Blade Runner, The Fountain.
I went to a screening where there was a talk from the guy who did the space visuals (Peter Parks, who also worked on Donner's Superman and Tree Of Life). They weren't done with CGI, but done by filming chemical reactions under a microscope: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Fountain#Visual_effects
Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives
Apart from when you see his son's ghost up close and he looks like a Mighty Boosh character.
