Hey R19 - I saw Tales of Hoffman last year as well and I was honestly disappointed - given how famous a visual film it is. The sets & costumes are indeed singular - you could love the style or not depending on your taste but there’s no arguing they are striking and memorable - but the experience of the film itself just bored me - ultimately too stage bound and static for my taste & I usually like oddball cinema - like Last Year At Marienbad - which is very very beautiful to look at.

The Last Picture Show and Paper Moon were back to back Peter Bogdanovich movies that had remarkable cinematography, editing, sound design and costuming. Although Paper Moon is a comedy, it is full of haunting imagery. And though a dark drama, The Last Picture Show has quirky crazy scenes, like the nude bathing party of the high school movers and shakers.
Two of the best put together American movies of the of the 70s.

"Alien" is one of the most visually immersive and stunning looking films ever produced. The late Derek Vanlint(who also was DP on "Dragonslayer) was an underrated master of his craft. It's a shame he only made TWO films. Ridley Scott used to make the most visually stunning films but his need to stay relevant and the use of digital capture and intermediaries has destroyed the unique look and intangible quality that made his work special.

Great Expectations (1998) directed by Alfonso Cuaron -- a very aesthetically pleasing film. Stars Anne Bancroft, Robert De Niro, a hot Ethan Hawke, Gwynnie, Hank Azaria, and Chris Cooper. Lots of Francesco Clemente paintings that he made for the film. Donna Karan designed the wardrobe. Gorgeous set design that included an overgrown/crumbling Ca' d'Zan (the Ringling house in Sarasota), and which used a lovely green palette throughout the film. Watched it obsessively on VHS when I was in the 8th grade.
The Talented Mr. Ripley is also gorgeous. I remember watching it many times on VHS, too, right around the time Great Expectations came out.

R51, Goldsmith's score isn't nearly as good in that scene as Tangerine Dream's for the Legend waltzing scene. The dancing scene is a little shorter with the Tangerine Dream score but the score produces much more tension. The Goldsmith version is nice, old fashioned like an old movie from the 30's but almost corny, and I feel there is no tension, it doesn't really build up the scene to what is, for Lilly, the horrific climax like the Tangerine Dream one does.

R160, you have the wonderful Billy Haines for your love of all white design. And Carole Lombard for hiring him after Louis B Mayer made him choose between his career and Jimmy Shields.
According to Joan Crawford, he and Jimmy Shields had the best marriage in Hollywood.

HOWARDS END is luscious, my favorite of the Merchant/Ivory films.
A Funny thing is, they would always get away with paying their actors hardly anything, and they were taken aback when Vanessa Redgrave asked for her usual salary. She was like, "I'm OLD. I need MONEY." And they were saying, "This is an art film!!" And she said (figuratively) "You can stuff your art!"
They finally paid her what she wanted, but they were grumpy about it. Hahahahaha!

I find the scenery in movies or tv shows set in the 1900s utterly fascinating. I loved watching The Knick on Cinemax. The attention to detail in the production was amazing. It was a beautiful looking show, if only it was on HBO, it would have been seen by more people.

R125 - Howards End - Young Sam West walking through the country side at night and dawn through fields filled with blue flowers. Heavenly imaged and very violent juxtaposition of natures beauty and softness combined with the cruelty of that character's situation.

Agree R153...something about the cozy winter setting. And Trintignant was at his most attractive and charming. Most great Rohmer films have a summery beach setting, but this is an exception. He's proof that you can make great looking films on a very small scale and low budget (sort of the opposite of Lawrence of Arabia, which I also love, and which demands to be seen on as huge a screen as possible).

Yes, the snow. I was even looking for a nice image with snow. That was what I was looking for. I wanted something nicer than what I linked but what I linked is ok. Yes, the coziness of the snow, and the intimate interior with the chair, sofa, bed and conversation.
The cozy quality of winter or Christmastime (just looking at images of Maud I noticed a Christmas tree in the background of a scene) are also in other films mentioned in this thread Holiday (1938) and Carol which also have cozy, intimate interiors and conversation.

I actually prefer the (admittedly empty) 1974 GATSBY to the 2013 version, which just felt like... too much to me. Frenetic.
Neither version completely captures the gorgeous sadness of the novel. Both are miscast. But at least the lazier rhythms of the 1974 version allow one to appreciate the stunning costumes, sets, lighting, and locales more than the latter.
