Vertigo (Special Edition) (1958)
  Hitchcock's masterpiece that shows San Francisco like it will always be remembered.
Lawrence of Arabia (1962)
  David Lean film that cinematography-wise would be too costly to make. Lean got some brilliant shots in this film of the desert and its power as well as the horrors of war.
Lawrence of Arabia (Limited Edition) (Disc 2 of 2) (1962)
  Great special edition extras that explain every shot and how it was made.
Lawrence of Arabia (Limited Edition) (Disc 1 of 2) (1962)
  Great special edition extras that explain every shot and how it was made.
Chinatown (1974)
  Roman Polanski's orange diffused lens lends Chinatown a film noir 40s feel and makes this film a visual treat.
Black Narcissus (Criterion Collection) (1947)
Not Rated
  Michael Powell and Emeric Pressberger were considered the best at Technicolor filmmaking. This film is their greats achievement with a climax that is visually stunning and fearful.
The Last Picture Show (Criterion) (1971)
  Peter Bogdanovich's B&W masterpiece that made the town a part of the story of angst filled teenagers. One of the best B&W films ever.
The Graduate (1967)
  Mike Nichol's truly pioneered the modernistic view of making movies. The leg shot of Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft) are brilliant by themselves.
A Place in the Sun (1951)
Not Rated
  Geroge Stevens pioneered the closeup here with the amazing scene where Montgomery Clift meets Elizabeth Taylor playing pool at a party. The famous kiss shot is an image we are all familiar.
Laura (1944)
Not Rated
  Otto Preminger's (and Rouben Mamolian's) finest film which improves on Gene Tierney's appearance and effortlessly allows the story be told through great cast shots.
Road to Perdition (2002)
  Pure Art! Sam Mendes' 2nd film is saved by Conrad Hall's brilliant cinematography. Some scenes you just marvel at despite teh moderatly weak screenplay.
Days of Heaven (1978)
  One fo the most beatiful films ever made. Terrence Malick puts art on screen but disappoints us with a muted story.
Brief Encounter (Criterion Collection) (1946)
Not Rated
  Suffering love in silence was never this good! David Lean makes these lovers pine and moan for each other only to step away in order to keep their ow santity.
Doctor Zhivago (1965)
  Another David Lean trimpth that does for snow what Lawrence of Arabia did for sand.
The French Connection (Collector's Edition) (1971)
  WIlliam Friedkin's revolutionary film that popularized the cinema veritie feel in American films.
The Third Man (Criterion Collection) (1949)

  Carol Reed's thriller that in a brilliant scene reveals Orson Welles at a pivotal moment.
Pulp Fiction (1994)
