I've watched a couple of very visually compelling movies in the last couple of months and I wanted to mention them here. Both films have amazing cinematography and both movies seem to have a wonderful mix of shots that combine to tell their strong story. If you haven;t seen either of these films, you should. I could watch both films on mute, thoroughly enjoying the framing and color of each shot.
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty visually captured me from the opening credits. Great shot choices and well executed.
GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL
When I watched this movie, it was as if I could see the thought that went into every shot and every layout. I loved the symmetry and the wonderful color, all easily understood just from watching the trailer.
