Movies are a complicated mix of light, music, special effects, plot twists and quirky story lines. It’s hard to tell what exactly makes a movie truly superb, but one thing we know for sure – it doesn’t hurt if a movie looks visually stunning. In fact, some movies are made in such a beautiful way, that we forgive them any kind of flaws they might have. It’s not all about the visuals, but when the movie’s beautiful, it becomes a kind of picture perfect art in itself that’s not caught in one moment, but is moving constantly from one frame to another. Here are 10 movies with truly stunning visuals.
Shot in the world famous Hermitage Museum, this movie presents to the viewer footage that is mesmerizing, dreamy and incredibly beautiful. The location looks simply jaw-dropping and the characters are clad in brilliant costumes that altogether create an unforgettable mood. Cinematographer Tilman Büttner used impeccable lighting and special camera movements to depict marvelously composed scenes.
It’s been decades since we’ve stepped into the era of colored movies, yet some directors still feel nostalgic about the good old magic of the black-and-white palette. Manhattan is a remarkable love letter to the city created by Woody Allen in 1979. He managed to create a timeless depiction of New York that is classy, spectacular, and bears a significant hint of noire. Woody Allen didn’t like how the movie turned out and tried to cancel its release, but fortunately for us he wasn’t successful. This movie is truly gorgeous!
