In the Mood for Love
You can’t take your eyes off every beautiful frame of this poetic, romantic film.
Epic grandeur. I love the ball scene—seeing it on a big screen is so unforgettable!
All the President’s Men
It is a classic of this genre. It has the best sets, lighting that has been emulated over and over and compelling visual storytelling.
A great looking film plus Italy in the 1960s. I love the party scene and the Jean Moreau scene in the car in the rain.
Beautiful and inspiring ’70s photography of Jane Goodall discovering Africa.
