4 Movies You Might Like If You Like Photography

I'm in the middle of writing an "About Me" section for this website. Because I really like cinema I thought of pointing you toward my favorite movies that fall into the photography/picturesque section. These four are the ones that immediately came to my mind. Don't forget to hit the fullscreen buttons.


The Decisive Moment - Henri Cartier-Bresson

This little documentary shows images by French street photography pioneer Henri Cartier-Bresson. The interesting thing about this movie is that his images are accompanied by his voice.
Killer of Sheep

This one is an old and slow movie full of candid scenes that would make great photographs. If you find yourself often in museums starring at street photography from recently past times, you will enjoy this one a lot.
Baraka

A documentary about the world we live in. Imagine the best travel photos you have ever seen and make them move. You might not be able to digest this movie in one session - it is quite intense.
The Band's Visit

Okay, this one is a bit different. It does have some great imagery, but it is particularly funny. Check it out!

Oh I haven't seen that one yet. Maybe I'll add it once I saw it.

Something is telling me that this list is going to grow :)

Baraka is without a doubt one of the best movies out there. On a side note, BBC's new Life series is magnificently shot

Will watch it when I get the chance.
