Cinema is beautiful.
Movies have the power to transport us to another world, envelop us in it and make us feel at home.
It is all too easy to forget this.
@Miramax tweeted this at the weekend – 135 Shots That Will Restore Your Faith in Cinema a video essay by Flavurpill. Beautifully put together, this short video celebrates the magic of the movies. Some of those included are; Melancholia, Baraka, Koyaanisquatsi, Hero and Amelie. Each shot flows into the next and no judgement is passed over the film as a whole. Instead the video simply says ‘Look at this amazing shot’.
Next time you feel disheartened about the state of contemporary cinema, take a look at this video; people are still making beautiful films.
