Is this the best shot in film history?
Watch out. Legion of plebs will come post screenies from post-1990 EPIC sci-fi films or Michael Mann crime shitfests or wow-look-at-the-naturalism from Deakins cinematography works or Malick films. Possibly followed by the comment "dat cinematography"
>implying a Michael Mann movie is any less valid of a pick or any more entry level than Marienbad
>implying that Vierny didn't do far better work with Greenaway
and you have the gall to call others pleb?
A shot is composed with of moving images you plebeian. The best shots cant be experienced unless you see them in motion. For example, tarkovskys shots are like 2 minutes long each, to really understand how good tarkovskys cinematography is you need to see the full shot. What you posted was a still image from a shot. Compisitionally the shot is very impressive, but thats such a small aspect to what makes it good or not.
This is actually true. All the best movies are in fact old ones. There is a reason why all movies these day borrow troupes and ideas from old movies. Seriously where did this negative connotation for old movies come from? It is seriously ignorance at it's finest.
you're not going to like it here
but thanks for the post
because people are too pleb and lazy to watch past entry-level shit like Apocalypse Now or Marienbad and think that it's super x-perimental outer-rim ultra-avant trve art and get all superiority complex about it, instead of actually doing research into good movies.
eh, i suppose they're not bad, but 'good' on the scale that something like Star Wars or Die Hard or Badlands is good. We all know that it's good, and no one is going to mount a successful argument that any of these movies are bad, but that doesn't mean they're that interesting, particularly spectacular, the best-made around, or really the cream of the crop on any aspect. Yeah, they're good gateway films, but that gives them more personal importance than merited in a discussion. It's really not the end of the world though, /tv/ is still the best film appreciation board on the net
