All Quiet on the Western Front is absolutely stunning, given it came out in 1930.
To be fair though don't think there's any reason to discount nudity done well in cinema, I mean theres plenty of well respected visual art with it in elsewhere just the case that it tends to often be viewed as a cheap not very ambitious option in cinema. In something like Under The Skin for example many of the most visually ambitious scenes in it have Johansson and others in various states of undress, not that there desexualised but clearly far more than just having someone undress.
Just dropping some names, considering that will not list Gilliam/Burton because it will be cheating
Just some names, for different reasons
Life of Pi
PIrate's of the Caribbean (first)
The Last Samurai
Jurassic Park (first)
The Fall (Singh)
Grand Budapest Hotel
Sin City (first)
il racconto dei racconti
Anything Fincher, nobody shoots like him.
This is my first thought.
Also, the Incredibles. If you have time, i highly suggest reading this: http://floobynooby.blogspot.com/2013/12/the-cinematography-of-incredibles-part-1.html
I'm surprised no Aguirre from Zer....
Has The Cell been mentioned yet?
I was recently trying to explain the Uncanny Valley effect to a couple of kids. They knew what I meant without much explanation because kids have an eye for the difference between real and fake.
I think this explains why CGI has almost always been more successful for human(ish) characters who are either outright badguys or at least intended to be creepy. Look at say the Tron sequel, actual CGI Jeff Bridges at the start doesn't really work, Clu on the other hand works fine because the uncanny valley effect plays into the character.
It's definitely situationally acceptable, depending on intention and tone.
wait, none of these are pron, what did you do with the REAL Zer?
Rush Hour 2
The old Zatoichi series was shot really well
Any of Loretta's movies. Also because I saw Baron Munchausen in theatres as a kid. Also because of 18 yr old Uma Thurman.
Mentioned The Fall from Singh, The Cell and Mirror Mirror and Immortals all looked good too
Definitely Gilliams most underrated film for me.
Immortals looks like a BDSM themed channel advert, not sure whether that's a good or bad thing.
Don't stop till you get enough
You're thinking of 300. IMMORTALS is legit! IN SPITE OF ROURKE.
Doing it'ds job it really looked good lol
