Aesthetically Pleasing Moments in Movies

Lately, I've been enjoying more and more the beauty of the visuals of certain scenes of movies whereas usually I mainly just concentrate on story. But a movie is more than that, and I seem to have been ignoring the visual element. Cinema is an art form of many faces. What are some of your favorite scenes from movies based solely on the visuals? Preferably with pictures.

This whole scene from Pirates of the Caribbean, i think it's the third. The black pearl washes up at this place too.



also while i'm on pirates


and then pretty much moonrise kingdom in its entirety





instantly became my favorite movie.

Tree of Life: Now, this movie was so weird and awful that I couldn't finish it, but some of those scenes were just gorgeous











your turn.

The Fountain had amazing some pretty mind-blowing stuff that completely fell under the radar.

The part in "Up" when the balloon reflections fill that kid's entire room. Like, seriously, Pixar, we get it. You have a shit ton of money.


edit: the scene with this kid's room: http://findingmickey.squarespace.co...ctureId=8166340

So was Matrix Revolutions, and I still think The Fountain had more interesting visuals.

Agreed on both counts, but I'd rather watch the Matrix Revolutions because at least that had some cool action scenes to break up the pretentiousness.

Sadly that's how it is. Seeing pictures from the movie, I was thoroughly disappointed. I expected so much more from that, and it really made no sense.


Now for a great movie with great visuals.

All of Persona, but especially the opening scene (I'll get banned if I post any of it probably) and this one


Repulsion


Enter the Void


Antichrist



The Seventh Seal


The Good, The Bad and the Ugly


Synecdoche, New York (this scene and others are ten times more beautiful if you've actually seen the movie and get what's going on)


2001


Barry Lyndon



I could go on for hour but I shant.

"Trollhunter" has a lot of nice shots of the Norwegian landscape. "Red Dawn" has some nice ones too. Towards the end (I think) Jed and his brother are sitting in a field at sunset talking, that's probably the best one. The remake looks horrible.
