What movies would you recommend with great cinematography?

PostTue Apr 06, 2021 1:51 pm

I learned a bit about cinematography and now I've really started to enjoy movies with cinematography. I now know a bit how cinematography works and I can really appreciate good cinematography. Movies like S.T.A.L.K.E.R. blade runner, 2001 a space odyssey, interstellar are all great. And I'm looking for even greater movies

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford is a recent favorite. The movie is underrated as well.

I agree with Ben Hur as a selection. Here are some stills:

Christopher Nolan's Academy Award for Cinematography winner, Inception (Wally Pfister cinematographer).

The classic films from Tarkovsky and Alejandro González Iñárritu's Academy Award for Cinematography winner (Emmanuel Lubezki cinematographer) and homage to his style, The Revenant.

Indian Summers, the series by Masterpiece. There are two styles, a soft, diffused, pastel colored style used for the whites only club, and a bolder, brightly colored style used in the Indian village.

Although most of the Masterpiece episodes have good cinematography, these ones are shot mainly on location outdoors in Maylasia, with a big budget, and looks a lot sexier.

You should get a lot more responses on the Cinematography forum.

Good films, but I prefer surrealistic films such as The Holy Mountain (Alejandro Jodorowsky).

A very subjective question/answer but... I like Children of Men. Gravity also. Alfonso Cuaron's work. Magical stuff.
