Top 10 visually stunning movies | Movies


The word eye-candy comes to mind when we talk about visually stunning movies. But there is often substance behind the dazzling images. We have selected 10 beautiful films to take stock.

10. “The days of paradise” (1978) – Terrence Malick tells the story of Bill and Abby (Richard Gere and Brooke Adams), two lovers who harvest crops for a wealthy farmer (Sam Shepard) on the Texas Panhandle. When the farmer falls in love with Abby, Bill encourages her to marry him so they can inherit his money after her death. The sprawling farmlands are blindingly beautiful. The film won the Oscar for Best Cinematography.

9. “2001: a space odyssey” (1968) – Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece follows a spaceship’s journey to Jupiter, a journey that involves a sensitive computer known as the HAL and a mysterious obelisk. He won the Oscar for best visual effects.

8. “The tree of life” (2011) – Terrence Malick again, this time chronicles the origins and meaning of life through the childhood memories of a middle-aged man in his family living in 1950s Texas, interspersed with images of the origins of the known universe and the beginning of life on Earth. Pretty mind-boggling, right? He was nominated for an Oscar for his cinematography.

7. “The cell” (2000) – Tarsem Singh in his directorial debut uses stunning visuals to tell the story of a child psychologist (Jennifer Lopez) who uses virtual reality techniques to treat her patients in a coma. Dark dreamy landscapes permeate this thriller.

6. “Apocalypse now” (1979) – Francis Ford Coppola captures the conflicting images of war in this interpretation of a Joseph Conrad theme. It will almost make you love the smell of napalm in the morning as a phalanx of helicopters fly over the horizon at Richard Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries”. The film won an Oscar for its cinematography.

5. “Autumn Sonata” (1978) – Ingmar Bergman delivers a sense of majestic beauty in this tale about a famous classical pianist (Ingrid Bergman in her last role) who meets her neglected daughter (Liv Ullmann) for the first time in years.

4. “Barry Lyndon” (1975) – Stanley Kubrick again, this time giving us a period drama about an 18th-century Irish thug (Ryan O’Neal) who marries a wealthy widow in order to climb the social ladder. The rich visuals reflect the sensibility of William Makepeace Thackeray’s 1844 novel that inspired the film. He won the Oscar for best photography.

3. “What dreams can come” (1998) – Robin Williams stars as a man who dies in a car crash and must now search for his wife through Heaven and Hell. He won the Oscar for best visual effects.

2. “Hero” (2002) – Often overlooked in favor of its more popular predecessor, “Crouching Tiger”, this is actually the better film… and the more beautiful of the two. Directed by Zhang Yimou, this wuxia martial arts film is based on the attempted assassination of the king of Qin in 227 BC. The visuals are impressive.

1. “The fountain” (2006) – The ‘real world’ storyline takes place in a lackluster hospital where a doctor (Hugh Jackman) tries to find a cure for his wife’s (Rachel Weisz) terminal cancer. Director Darren Aronofsky deliberately avoided CGI, instead using actual footage of chemical reactions and microorganisms for his visual effects. Oddly enough, it was overlooked when Oecars arrived.

Other suggestions from moviegoers include “Amalie”, “Midnight in Paris”, “Nostalgie”, “Grand Budapest Hotel”, “Interstellar”, “The Fall”, “Blade Runner”, “Manhattan”, “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. “
