“In the Mood for Love,” “Tree of Life,” or “Days of Heaven,” are some of the cinematic masterpieces that portray the viewer.
Blade Runner 2049 is greatly praised for its visuals, made by famed Roger Deakins. But unfortunately, this film still has to be ranked after 10 films, which are always in the top of the best quality visual effects of all time. And you know, if the movies came out so long ago that it made the audience fascinated with the movie, it was really the masterpiece of the movie world.
Along with 365comedymovies.com to the list of those movies in the order of the birth of the film it!
10. Black Narcissus (1947)
The dark story of the nuns living separately at a palace in the Himalayas may lose nine of the most effective images of the Englishman Jack Cardiff. This is a work often used to learn how color can contribute to psychological effects much.
Particularly the colors of the film are not captured directly, but manually drawn by Cardiff, then inserted into the film. The artist’s talent has portrayed a world of mesmerizing, as well as honoring the religious beauty of the nuns. As the film progresses, and the nuns lose themselves, the colors also change. Perhaps no movie has such a strange feel to the viewer, as if they had taken them somewhere between heaven and the end of the world.
9. The Leopard (1963)
This is a film portraying the passing of time, through the eyes of an old Italian nobleman, who witnessed the old traditions being outdated and replaced by a heartless young generation. Therefore, the image in the film must express the transfer, while integrating the feelings of regret and confusion of the old generation. The mobile angles of the Giuseppe Rotunno, under the experienced guidance of Luchino Visconti, guarantee this.
But just not enough for a masterpiece. Every death of a swan is accompanied by the greatest love song. Describing the finale of the old values is the key to the success of The Leopard. The most famous scene is in the ballroom, with great visual thinking, Visconti has portrayed the glittering noble light, the nostalgic royal dance of the aristocratic life is about to disappear.
Initially, despite winning the Palme d’Or at Cannes, the film did not reach the mass audience by the Italian “long” style (205 minutes long). Later, many directors, including Martin Scorsese, attempted to re-create the film for a more neat and dramatic cut.
8. The Conformist (1970)
Bernardo Bertolucci’s film is a mythical dream, and probably does not have such a beautiful dream. Bertolucci’s impressive style combined with the use of the color of the camera and director Vittorio Storaro has created a unique cinematic experience. The story is set in 1936, only around the car where a weak Italian led the Nazis to assassinate the old teacher.
Storaro adorned each scene with meticulous, subtle color schemes to depict the leaking of a character’s soul. Perhaps there is never a portrayed so complex and so dramatic, just by light and color. The Conformist was proclaimed the greatest achievement of color cinema since its inception.
7. Days of Heaven (1978)
The word most used to describe the beauty of this movie is “magic”. Each scene was filmed as if it was at the most beautiful time of the day, when the light could not be better. The countryside in Texas has never been so poetic, so deep and so atmospheric, as a backdrop of a love triangle on the left, unforgettable.
Terrence Malick’s second film is like a movie poem. This is the greatest achievement of the Néstor Almendros, and to this day, it is still surprising how much he can capture every moment of such refinement and clarity. After this movie, Malick “disappeared” from the studio for 17 years. Days of Heaven stay as a testimony to the director’s brilliant talents: telling stories with light.
6. Blade Runner – Crime Machine (1982)
When the rain of Los Angeles shows up, overwhelm the strange mechanical architecture, sweeping through the giant signs with a Japanese woman’s face, we know what the world of Blade Runner is. that’s special At the time of 1982, and even in the current review, nothing in this section is outdated. It does not depend on any convention that exists, so it is not eroded by time.
Jordan Cronenweth handles the world in many different layers. Aside from blending architectural styles around the world to create a sense of intimacy and alienation, Cronenweth also uses a technique rarely used before: Contrast. There are many bright lights in the film, from the screen, car lights, or the top of the house … from that creates the corresponding dark array. When exposed to thick layers of smoke, rain, these “bags” of light and darkness add depth to the image, as well as evoke the atmosphere of a true gloomy future.
5. In the Mood for Love (2000)
A fantasy love story as smoke, very difficult to grasp, but resounding in the long-term viewers and haunted as the first love. Director Wang Jia Wei, with its characteristic style, does not use the plot but uses a lot of detail to create a separate cinema space. In the Mood for Love is a visual feat, with each frame as a whisper, telling a story that must be hidden.

Perhaps, there is hardly any language that describes the beauty of this film, besides enjoying it yourself. To understand the reason why In the Mood for Love ranked second in the list of 100 best films of the 21 century voted by the BBC.
4. Waking Life (2001)
Prior to Loving Vincent, the film’s attention was drawn to the hand-painted canvas, featuring Richard Linklater’s Waking Life. Though not as successful as the film’s graphic genius, and using mostly computer-generated effects, Waking Life is the epitome of real-life painting, serving the purpose of filmmaking. Specifically.

Because this is an existential work, using the structure of a dream to express the complex problems of existence, the image must also bear the shape of a dream. Viewers are like strangers in a strange world, with characters from all over the world exchanging endless, with awakening dreams. Initially, the watercolor layer as if falling off at any time of the film will make the viewer slightly difficult to follow. But when we get used to, Waking Life is a dream that we can not escape.
3. Children of Men (2006)
At this time, perhaps no stranger to Emmanuel Lubezki, of course, often accompanied by Mexican director Alejandro G. Iñárritu. Won three Oscars in the shooting category for three consecutive years from 2013 to 2015, he is the world’s # 1 current filmmaker, marking a series of critically acclaimed Gravity films. Gravity, 2013), Birdman (The Birdman, 2014), The Revenant (2015).
However, the work that Lubezki expressed all his talent as Children of Men, collaborated with his childhood friend, director Alfonso Cuarón. By the time of 2027, when humanity is no longer fertile, the film follows a man who seeks to protect the only pregnant woman. In addition to its intricate and deep religious elements, this is a film showing Lubezki’s mastery of long-take, which includes a seven-minute, extremely complex scene between the war.
2. Tree of Life – Tree of Life (2011)
Like Tree of Life, Days of Heaven continues to be a poem by Terrence Malick. And guess who, who is behind the camera? It is Emmanuel Lubezki. The combination of the master of light and the manual camera of image control, is a special language that won the critique in 2011.
The film, which is likened to a 2001: A Space Odyssey (2001: Traveling Space, 1968) of the 21st century, explores spiritual issues such as death, reincarnation, loss, at … the story of a family in the Texas countryside. Every scene in the film contains Malick’s spiritual motives, bringing to light the perceptions of human existence, which are just dust particles in the vast space of the universe. Lubezki expresses this idea with subtlety and meticulousness, flying high at the direction of Malick in so many ways, as showing how life forms.
Not many people believe that Malick and Lübeck can overcome the past accomplishments in terms of visuals, because they were rare climbers. But surprisingly, they have managed to convince the Tree of Life.
1. Life of Pi (2012)
Ang Lee’s work is probably one of the two most important milestones of the 3D format. The first milestone was when it was introduced overwhelmed by James Cameron with the superhero Avatar (The Body, 2009). Roger Ebert has written about Life of Pi as “a fantastic achievement in storytelling and visual effects.” If Avatar is a standard in 3D, Life of Pi puts it on the top. High, perfect service for the religious message through the story of an Indian boy and Bengal tiger trying to survive the sea.
If you are looking for a work that only great images are enough to make the viewer shed tears, it is Life of Pi. Not only does “utopian” make a true tiger full of computer-generated effects, the film also brings amazing science-fiction scenes under the 3D glasses. And the most amazing thing is to make you forget that is 3D.
