MAY 1, 2011- THE MOST BEAUTIFUL (COLOR) FILMS
Here in the Midwest, May is an especially beautiful month. Spring flowers. New leaves. Blue skies. In honor of the season, this month’s discussion topic is movies that look like a million bucks. I’m talking the best looking, gorgeous, visually stunning movies. Because I was inspired by the flowers, let’s stick with color films.
It could be the cinematography that puts them over the edge. Or the art direction or locations. Maybe the director’s painterly compositions. What’s on your list?
