The Black Hole
I know it’s a Disney kiddy film, but the space scenes are on par with 2001…. oops I mentioned it :)
I love Barry Lyndon, with cinematography made only by natural light. And Cabinet of Dr. Caligari’s classic stage design. But the work of Sven Nykvist, specially Persona, that’s true masterpiece.
(Sorry for my EN)
And everybody should watch The Mill and The Cross, which is film version of Pieter Bruegel the Elder’s painting The Way to Calvary.
Porn pleases me.
Nicholas Ray’s films: Rebel Without a Cause, Johnny Guitar, Bigger Than Life….I love the colours in these films.
I watched I Am Love a couple of nights ago – beautiful. Persona, Picnic at Hanging Rock, and A Single Man also come to mind.

As the poet Matsuo Basho once said, all true art possesses one thing in common—to be one with nature throughout the four seasons of the year.

@Curtis—Kwaidan is a visual gem. Especially The Woman of the Snow sequence. The way the wind moves through the trees in the forest is hypnotic and spellbinding.
