234 thoughts on “Films A-Z

  1. Jeunet seems to be a high amount of requests so ill have to track down DVDs (would Alien Resurrection do???)

    I have ashamedly not gotten around to watching Amores Perros, but its on my list! I really love Frida and its beautifully shot, so thanks for the reminder and expect to see that one soon!

  2. Amores perros is a great film with some really great camera work if I remember rightly.

    I think There Will Be Blood would be a great choice too. In fact I think I’ll review that one soon on my blog lol.

    I would also recommend Brick and Pi – both visually wonderful in their own very unique ways.

  3. I find that Asian cinematography has a completely unique style to it, it would be interest to see some reviews on some Asian films such as “Chunking Express” and “Thirst”. I found these films to have some extremely different and interesting shots compared to western cinema.

    • I just finished watching 2046, and it really is beautifully shot. Hopefully it will make it up at some point.

      I am going to have to see if my local library has a decent selection of asian DVD’s as my own DVD collection is sorely lacking!

  4. Lots of beautiful films here!
    I’d love to see Days of Heaven and Children of Men honored here as well.
    And if you’re open to non-American films, The White Ribbon and Hero are certainly lovely films too. Plus, as mentioned before by others, everything by Jean Pierre Jeunet is beautiful.
    Thanks for a great collection of films!

  5. Just finalising my Days of Heaven post as we speak (or more like just before i started typing this).

    The White Ribbon was really excellent, I’ll probably do a Haneke week, or maybe a B&W Week.

  6. I have a request, I haven’t watched this film in a while but I think you’ll enjoy the cinematography quite a bit. Its called Raise the Red Lantern by Yimou Zhang

  7. I was just about to say you should finish off your Mallick collection. Now only The Thin Red Line left to do.

    Some other requests I hope you get around to someday- No Country For Old Men, American Beauty, Road to Perdition, Sin City and maybe some LOTR.

    Great job guys.

  8. Glazer will get done at some point, I still have to buy Birth…if only for that jogging in the snow scene🙂

    ill keep an eye out for Raise the Red Lantern, maybe I should start a donate a DVD option.

    Malick will be finished up soon, untill tree of life comes out that is, American Beauty is on the list, as are all of the movies you mentioned.

    Im eager to do a Coen brothers week, but a lot of my favourites are all out on loan from my collection!!!

    As for the “great job guys” thanks so much for that, but there is only one guy running this thing…. so many movies so little time!!!!

  9. Watchmen isn’t on the blog because I didn’t like the movie, that’s not to say that it wont get done (because there are some really wonderful scenes and frames) it’s just not high on my list of priorities… though if I get more requests (or if someone wants to mail me a DVD) Ill be sure to bump it up the list.

    Torque I havent seen, but actually do want to see (the wonderful Adam Scott is in it) like Watchmen, it could well get done but I have no idea when!

    Hope the trailer is helping drum up some funding for your film…its a great ides (I just wished the movies I made made good trailers)

  10. I’ve wanted to do a Coen week since I started, but 3 of my DVDs are in friends houses so I might wait till I get them back… or I might start trickling out some Coen classics soon.

    What a master of suspense I am!

  11. Just found out about this website. Awesome!
    For me, cinematography – besides muisc/score – is the most important thing in a movie (which actually should be obvious, since a movie is about MOVING IMAGES, but still most people seem not to care or “get” it). Great job on this site!

    You should add “Stay” (by Marc Foster) and “Mr. Nobody” (from 2009) to the list some day – probably the most beautiful cinematography I can remember seeing in films.

    Keep it up!

  12. It’s not film but it is cinema. I’ve recently been watching the Wallander series shot in part by Anthony Dod Mantle of “Slumdog Millionaire” fame and I have to say it is some of the most stunning visual poetry I’ve seen. Each episode is feature-length and everything about it is top notch; the cinematograpy, the setting, the most gorgeous lighting not to mention the acting.
    Shot entirely on Red One cameras. If you want to see what the future of digital cinema looks like check out this series.

  13. Hmm. Very nice collection! I’ve been obsessed with cinematography/post-prod ever since I screentested There Will Be Blood as a projectionist. I’ll watch anything with Elswit or Deakins at DoP, regardless of subject matter.

    Two films I think you might want to look into are;
    A Single Man, by Tom Ford.
    He even de-saturates and re-saturates colour hues within single shots, depending on moods. But generally, worth seeing for extreme production values and set dec, and a few interesting tricks for a first-time director. I think there are reflections in about 90% of the shots in the first act.

    The Fall, by Tarsem Singh.
    Simply the prettiest film I’ve ever seen. I watch it regularly to justify my purchase of a 50″ plasma screen at home. Tarsem is an extremely visual director, if lacking in the storytelling department. His previous film was The Cell, and although not well received critically overall, everyone agreed it was very, very pretty.

  14. Some great suggestions guys!

    A lot of them are in my to do pile, some I still have to get on DVD.

    I missed the Fall and A Single Man when they were in cinemas, have wanted to see them but just still haven’t gotten around to it….will do soon!

  15. I really like your site, and share with your passion, love and appreciation of cinema. Keep the site up, glad I found it – there are so many movies that I’d like to see referenced here but I guess the top three that I’m interested in seeing you breakdown into 60 great shots would be …

    1. Barry Lyndon
    2. Apocalypse Now
    3. JFK

  16. Barry Lyndon is up (I did a week of Kubrick posts), I’ll do Apocalypse Now just as soon as I get myself the proper DVD (I only have redux).

    Oliver Stone was one of the first directors I really got into, and JFK was one of my favourite films… I guess Mr. Stone’s recent output hasput me a bit off him, but you’re absolutely right in suggesting JFK… I’ll get on it!

  17. Spirit of the Beehive is a film I have meant to watch for ages. So Id love to do it.

    (Edit) I just looked into it, and apparently the Region 2 UK DVD is in 4:3, which is the wrong aspect ratio for the movie….which means Ill have to wait till I have money to order the Criterion edition… Ill look some more into it see can I find a good copy.

    (Edit) I see the Uk DVD isnt actually cropped (significantly), but the criterion release has much nicer colours, and a nicer general transfer… better get saving!

  18. Wow, dude, just watched Valhalla Rising last night, it deserves a marquee spot on this list. Might even top The Fall and Van Dieman’s Land for insane cinematography in my own collection.

    Although full disclosure, I can’t buy it in New Zealand, so I had to somewhat slightly steal a 720p rip from the dark corners of the internet. Which was a bit of a boon, standard DVD quality won’t do this justice. I’ll still buy it on dvd though. Just let it sit on the shelf and watch the 720p.

    No entries for V in the list yet, so you gotta hit up Valhalla or Van Dieman’s asap!

  19. I don’t know if you’ve seen it, but SNATCH is my favorite film of all time, precisely because of it’s cinematography. May be worth a look see for you.

  20. All great suggestions, sadly I’m going to be limited a lot by whats in my collection!

    My friend lent me Holy Mountain and it looks great, so Im sure to get it in eventually!

    Keep those suggestions coming, gives me motivation to seek out stuff!

  21. Great blog! Thanks for doing this. I strongly recommend you check out “Heartbeats” by Xavier Dolan. It’s got inspiring cinematography (I think Stephanie Weber Biron, the DP, even won prizes for it’s cinematography). Would love to see it on your awesome blog.

  22. This is a great site and excellent resource. It would be pretty awesome if there were subcategories. Such as Interior and exterior locations. Night and day scenes. Scenes in Dining rooms, bedrooms and so on. Violent scenes, erotic scenes. Any way to break them down and make specific things easier to find.
    many thanks,

  24. Adore the Rushmore stills – was elated to see there’s a still from the slow-mo scene of max in the elevator with the beehive box. Keep up the lovely work, looking forward to you expanding your collection!

  25. I was quite surprised not to see “The Cook the Thief His Wife & Her Lover”, directed by Peter Greenaway, in your list. This has got to be the most visually striking films that I’ve ever seen. You should definitely watch it; I’m sure that you’ll be blown away by it. Othwerwise, excellent choice of stills.

  26. What a beautiful collection of films, I really appreciate your work. Might I add a suggestion or two? Come and See, a Russian film about WWII. Absolutely beautiful and breathtaking shots, the film still haunts me. Also a film called The Night of the Hunter, it’s a 50’s film but I was shocked at how unique and different (rather modern in my mind) the film looks from films of its time. It has gorgeous composition and lighting, it would make a wonderful addition to your list.

    • Thanks for the suggestions, amazingly enough they’re both in my “to do” list already… well maybe not amazing since the list is over 100 movies long, I better get cracking!

  27. “The Conformist” by Bernardo Bertolucci is stunning. Shot by Vittorio Storaro, Coppola was so impressed by his work that he brought him to the US for Apocalypse Now. Check it out.

  28. Hey Can you put up stills of “Before Nights Falls” and “The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover”. Need it for an assignment. If you could , i would appreciate it.

  29. A great looking film is Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf. It’s simply stunning! I still am in awe of how “art house” and modern the movie looks. You’re doing a great job by the way!

  30. Good call, I only got around to seeing it a few months ago but absolutely loved it. Looks amazing, without being too showy, nichols knows when to stand back and just let the actors go for it… will definitely appear on the site soon!

  31. Thanks so much for doing this! a really brilliant selection, I’d forgotten how beautiful some of these films are (particularly Antichrist). Enter the Void and Irreversible would be nice additions.

  32. Hi, I love your website and choice of films. Maybe you could put up some Mr. Nobody screencaps. Thank you for your time!

  33. I come to your brilliant website constantly for reference and sometimes to just look. Thanks again. I’d be thrilled to see: Wise Blood (Huston), Stranger than Paradise + Permanent Vacation (Jarmusch), If… (L. Anderson), Julien Donkey-Boy (Korine), Knife in the Water + Repulsion (Polanski), Last Tango in Paris (Bertolucci), and Risky Business.

    Motley suggestions, I know. Thanks again +100000000 for Two-Lane Blacktop and The Master.

  34. Paul, glad you like the site, everything (bar wise blood and risky business(really risky business?)) is already in my crazy long to do list, Ill add them sure. I’m itching to get them up but I am but one man, I’ll prob post Julien donkey Boy, Trash Humpers and Spring Breakers the week I get my hands on a copy. Ive a Polanski box set sitting beside me waiting fora few free hours… the others will get seen to too I promise

  35. hahaha that scene in Risky Business where Rebecca De Mornay is getting buck naked and the wind blows the door open is true cinema. I love the score in that film. “The dream is always the same.” I’ve got that sucker on blu-ray

  36. Hey!
    Have you considered Mr. Nobody directed by Jaco Van Dormael. I think the use of color in the film is beautiful and there are so many great shots.
    Hope you considered it!
    This is a great site

  37. I love the work you’re doing here, and I use this site as a reference constantly.

    I think the addition of Mystery Train by Jarmusch would be amazing. The color cinematography by Robby Müller is almost as excellent as his work on Paris, Texas.

  38. Lets not say something well regret in the morning jm! I love mystery Train but Paris Texas is in a league of its own!

    I actually am prepping a post on Mystery Train now, should be up in the next month or two

    • Hi Arturo, Ive considered having a donate button, but I feel bad for asking for money, maybe I’ll post an amazon wishlist so people can contribute in that way sending me movies I want to feature on the site.

      My workflow is thus
      1. Make a to do pile, its a combination of recommendations, stuff Ive been enjoying myself, stuff I want to rewatch…. i try to keep a mix of styles.genres/directors and DP’s so I dont get bored while working.
      2. I watch through the movies on VLC, usually between 3x and 4x speed while listening to podcasts, grabbing any frame that interests me. Depending on mood I could spend a few hours just doing the grabbing
      3. This usually leaves me with around 200-250 frames per film. So the next step is to edit, usually there might be a week or 2 between the first grab and this edit stage. I view all the frames as a slideshow and I remove any frame that there are doubles of (someone might be blinking in first frame and normal in second) or remove any that seem less interesting this time around.
      4. I’m then left with usually around 80-100 really interesting frames. I go through the folder again (immediately)looking at the frames on large preview and try and remove frames that replicate a certain lighting style or framing. and bring down the number of stills to my 60-65 golden number.
      5. I run the images through a batch encoder with Irfanview to get rid of black borders on the image , rename the files, and conform them to jpg.
      6. Upload the images to wordpress and in zip form to mediafire, format up the post link everything as necessary, and I’m done

      • Hi could you please tell me how you get the frames? i tried using screen capture while the movie plays on the computer dvd player and i just got grey squares where the picture should be

      • I use a program called VLC which has a “Take Snapshot” function, Ive added Your requests to my to do list… but its an awfully long list, will try get to them as soon as possible but it may be months

      • Could you please tell me exactly how you remove the black borders on the frames with infranview? do you just manually crop it?

      • 1 more thing (sorry about all the questions i just want to know how i can do this myself) do you use normal DVDs or blu rays, and do you use the original unedited still (besides the removal of the black border) or do you enhance or sharpen it it any way?

      • Im not sure what the mac alternative to irfanview is. I use DVD or Blu Ray, depending on the movie and what I have access to, I dont manipulate the image at all. With BLu Rays I save lower resolution because otherwise the site would take forever to load.

  39. Thankyou random & anonymous internet person! This is such a great site, thankyou for doing this. You should definitely put a donate and wishlist link right at the top of the page for people to send you films, rather than all the requests. This is such a big process to have to do for all of these films so I’d be amazed if people didn’t pay a little bit back.

  40. This site is a phenomenal reference. Might I suggest a contemporary cinematographer whose works has been far too overlooked? Antonio Calvache, for my money one of the best in the world right now. In The Bedroom, Little Children, and the terribly underrated The Words, a movie you might want to have a look at for you blog. It is a film of stunning imagery and colors, almost from another time. It’s some of the most beautiful photographic work I’ve seen in years.

  41. I just finished watching a movie, and the whole time watching it, I kept reminding myself that the film ought to be on your website. The film was A Man and A Woman (1966), the shots are GORGEOUS!! French New Wave has the most beautiful filming, and this film was no exception. Its photography reminds me of Stalker and Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf.

  42. okay, i’m about to suggest away to make your life more difficult. sorry. but going through your archive I can see how there might be a need for some people to find films by genre/theme. i.e. films about music/ female centric films/ psychological thrillers and so on…

  43. Hi dd, its a good suggestion Ive considered it before, in theory its an easy thing to implement, but it starts to get tricky with what falls into what genre. I don’t like to generalise (there is only one genre on my ipod “good music”) mainly because I’m not good at it. Can you elaborate on how you would see it implemented, by which i mean how many genre tags would/should a film have roughly? And give some examples. If I can wrap my head around a way thats helpful (and easy) I will for sure get on it

    • Hi Jonas! I dedicate January to the best looking films of the year before so absolutely expect Only God Forgives and Mud to show up there. Bronson is a great looking film and I have all the stills picked for it, will be uploading them next batch of uploads (a month or 2)

  44. I just stumbled upon this site, and it’s safe to say I’m very impressed. I was wondering, could you put up stills for The Game, The Yards, and The Bling Ring in the near future (as if you can’t tell, I’m a big Harris Savides fan)?

  45. Good call, I heard them talk about broken circle breakdown on Filmspotting and Im intrigued to see it. Blue is the warmest color will be up very soon, and Jagten is another Ive been meaning to watch but have menaged to not get around to! Thanks for the suggestions

  46. I don’t know if anyone has mentioned this title yet but, you should seriously consider adding Luc Besson’s Subway.

  47. You should also add Besson’s La Dernier Combat, La Femme Nikita, The Fifth Element, Angel-A, and The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec.

    And since you have Beineix’s brilliant Betty Blue, you should also add his other masterpiece, Diva (the rest of his films are a bit of a mixed bag, though they often contain some beautiful images, especially in Moon In The Gutter).

    Some additional Bergman choices that would make great additions are Fanny and Alexander, Hour Of The Wolf (my introduction to his brilliant works of art), Cries and Whispers, Sawdust and Tinsel (his first real masterpiece), and his “god trilogy” (Through A Glass Darkly, Winter Light, and The Silence).

    To be honest, I could easily list a 1,000 brilliantly artistic films, without even having to think about it (I am a serious movie junky, avid collector, and true cinephile).

    So if you are looking for any further suggestions, or need any other input, feel free to email me at

  48. I love this site so much! Thank you for doing this. I do wish you could search by genre though.

    Keep up the great work!!

  49. This site is amazing. I love it!

    A couple to add to the list. I’d love to see Catch Me If You Can, The Ice Storm, Three Colors: Blue, Ghostbusters

  50. Great website! Could you please add American Gangster (2007) and The Bank Job (2008) i would really appreciate it because i’m having trouble finding good stills for both of those movies

  52. Nice that you are open for requests. I have just watched Uzak (English title: Distant) by Turkish director Nuri Bilge Ceylan and it is beautifully shot, which directly reminded me to check out whether there are stills of it on this side. Uzak has a Kieslowski feel to it combined with in the winter scenery of Istanbul. I hope to find it here someday and I’m sure you’ll pick the best visuals as usual if you decide to publish it🙂 And even if you don’t. The movie is definitely worth a watch… Anyway, great work sir. Thank you for putting so much effort

  53. Brilliant resource, thank you SO much for compiling this and sharing it!

    Could you add Timur Bekmambetov’ s Night Watch? (and Day Watch too if poss?)
    And a few more Mike Leigh titles? (Happy Go Lucky, Abigail’s Party, Secrets and Lies, Another Year, Life is Sweet)

    Thank you!

  54. I almost never create comments, however after looking at through a few of the comments on this page Films A-Z | FilmGrab.

    I do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright. Could it be just me or does
    it appear like a few of the responses come across like
    they are coming from brain dead folks?😛 And, if you are posting on additional places,
    I would like to follow you. Would you make a list of all of all your shared sites like your

  56. Наравне и большинство фильмов Disney, [b]«Земля будущего»[/b] напоминает поход в сквер развлечений — он, возможно, и оставит о себе приятные воспоминания, однако во второй единожды туда уже не пойдешь, захочется чего-то нового.

    Искушенного зрителя удивить здесь даже не пытаются — со свежими идеями у Берда определенно были проблемы, потому он, вдруг та сорока, свил себе источник из того, что нашел на стороне. Заимствования, бывает, придают истории красок, только не в этом случае — быстро чрезвычайно все шаблонно и стереотипно. Даже Лори не дали развернуться в образе антагониста — грабитель из него получился стерильный до безобразия.

  60. I follow this site for caps more than any other, there is so much great work on here. Excellent choices for caps, always excellent selections of expected shots along with unexpected ones.

    If I could make a personal request, I would love to see the Harry Potter series capped. Not so much for the first two, but I’d love to see caps for Prisoner of Azkaban, Order of the Phoenix, Half-Blood Prince, and both Deathly Hallows parts. There aren’t too many screencap sites that have caps for those films unfortunately.

  61. Simply wish to say your article is as surprising. The clarity in your put up is just spectacular and that i can assume you’re an expert in this subject.
    Fine with your permission let me to clutch your RSS feed to stay up to date with coming
    near near post. Thank you 1,000,000 and please continue the
    enjoyable work.

  62. Could you Please Add:

    – Un 32 août sur terre (1998) (Denis Villeneuve)
    – Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives (2010) (Apichatpong Weerasethakul)
    – Pink Floyd The Wall (1982) (Alan Parker)

    Thanks a lot

  70. Hi, sometime last year I was the one who requested for Harry Potter screencaps (unless others also asked). This site is, sincerely, by far my favorite website for screencaps. I check this place literally every day for new updates. I just wanted to say thanks for finally getting around to the series (I can only imagine how difficult maintaining a site like this is), and I also wanted to say something else just to get your own input on it.

    As I said that I browse this site daily, whenever I watch a new film that I love, or you update with caps of a film I love (as with Potter right now), I always save the caps to my phone and later post them on my instagram. Now, I’m sure what your answer to my question will be, but would you like/prefer for me to include links to this site whenever I post caps from here? As I presumed your answer would undoubtedly be yes, I just wanted to say that as a heads up (for lack of better phrasing).
