Perks of Being a Wallflower. Unusual choice maybe, but there is a very distinct quality in the movie. It's like a book in movie form, probably because the writer did most of the writing for it too.

And yes, Life of Pi, man it's artsy. Add Cloud Atlas to the list as well. It's more about the ideas than the action and scenery. Oh, Pan's Labyrinth. Sticks with you and you just appreciate the sort of dark quality it has.

I agree mostly with `saintartaud.

Peter Greenaway's films are all meticulously crafted visually. Andrei Tarkovsky's films make the simplest, most mundane things look appealing.

Black Narcissus: It's as pretty as a painting, because the more magnificent images actually are paintings.

In The Mood For Love: Basically all of Kar Wai Wong's films are good looking, sometimes though the style is a little too domineering.

2001: A Space Odyssey - Blade Runner

Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter... and Spring: A lot of Ki-duk Kim's films are pretty, but this one definitely stands out.

The City of Lost Children: It's the only film I've watched that seems to just pop out of the screen.

watched the last one in Human Sexuality this year. Very graphic so please don't watch it unless you're over 18. But the filming was AMAZING. :squee:

Anything directed by Tarkovsky, Malick, Kubrick, Lynch, or Greenaway
Hero
The Fall
La Dolce Vita
The Night of the Hunter
The work of Svankmajer or Brothers Quay, including short films
I don't even know which movie by Welles to suggest.  About the only one that isn't artistry would be The Stranger, but that was pretty much his attempt to make a proper studio picture.
I'm sure I could list more without much effort if I had the time.

Life of Pi is definitely one of the most artistic modern movies I've seen.
Most Disney animations are very artsy.
And then getting back into older stuff, Citizen Kane is so visually powerful and symbolic, and then most of Hitchcock's films, as well.

I'm sure it's been said before, but by far, Life of Pi. Also, my favorite movie, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (I just found the whole style of it so eye-catching and subtly beautiful) and I noticed someone said Mirrormask. YES.

I think any film is art, and the sames go to TV shows, books, music, etc.

Honestly, I don't see the point in arguing this; if you mean films of exceptional quality, you should be asking "Movies that are masterpieces."

All directors aren't making films just for the sake of money. Some movies are more artistic than others. I don't think that all directors even consider themselves as artists. Some of them are just workers working for those who hired them to direct film.

Stanley Kubrick and David Lynch, for example, made films for their own satisfaction. Their goal was not to please masses and make money.

I understand your point, but actually we can think that everything around us is art on some level.

Meh, I always thought of the word art as "Work that is meant for an audience to enjoy" not "Work of extraordinary quality."

I seriously think that the word art has lost its meaning and pretty much become a synonym for "masterpiece" at this point.

I guess you could use the term "high-art" to mean a piece with a lot of work put into it and all that jazz, but really, I don't think of anything as more artistic than anything else.


Also, I may as well answer this; some movies that I consider to be the best of the best:

Shawshank Redemption
Spirited Away
Grave of the Fireflies
Both Godfathers (There is no Godfather part 3. Got it!?)
Blade Runner
2001: A Space Odyssey
Psycho
AKIRA
Vertigo

Very Personal choices that might not fit in:
Rocky
First Blood
Pulp Fiction
A Clockwork Orange
Dark Knight
The Thing (1980's John Carpenter version of course.)

AKIRA, yes! That is what I was going to say. I don't even like anime really and that is my favorite movie by a long mile! I don't even consider it an "anime", or some "Japanese" movie; I just consider it an excellent movie, period!

Maybe it is a no-brainer that films itself are always art. When we say that something is artistic, we mean something a bit special and distinctive.

"Work that is meant for an audience to enjoy." Art is not always supposed to be enjoyable. It can be really disgusting and ugly, something that makes you feel sick.

Oh yeah, I forgot 12 Angry Men and to kill a Mockingbird in the "definitely" section (The one above the "Very Personal choices that might not fit in" section), which is funny considering the fact that they're both courtroom dramas.

Too many to count of course, but for a combined visual, phonetic experience two of my favorites are 'Bladerunner' (directors cut) and 'The Fountain'. I think both are aesthetic masterpieces.

Most Ghibli movies. I love the animation and the attention to detail in the backgrounds.

I love the artistic style in the older Disney movies. The painted backgrounds (especially in Bambi, Snow White) especially. I like the style in Mulan too. Some of the other newer Disney movies have a style that's a bit too "clean" for my taste.
