What are some movies with good scenery?

Tools    





Hi. Im looking for films with nice visual palettes and landscapes like The Conformist, Barry Lyndon, The Tree of Life, The Searchers, especially Wes Anderson movies (Moonrise Kingdom), Atonement, Amarcord, The Fall... films like those. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Try The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. It's a beautiful film.

I thought this film had some great scenery...




There are several movies that come to mind that had some gorgeous location photography even if the movie itself wasn't that great:

Ryan's Daughter - Absolutely stunning film to look at; gorgeous English locations

The Hangover Part 2 - Beautiful on location scenery in Thailand

The Shining - Even though most of the scenery is blanketed in snow, it's still beautiful to look at

The Proposal - Terrible movie, but the Alaskan scenery was gorgeous

Couples Retreat - Filmed on location in Bora Bora

The Holiday - Lovely shots of English countryside

The Sound of Music - Austria never looked so beautiful

Dr. Zhivago - Russia has never looked so appealing onscreen before

Giant - Filmed on location in Texas

The Sandpiper - California's Big Sur is one of the film's best elements



The Beach also has great scenery. Not a great movie though.



Sorry Harmonica.......I got to stay here.
Vanishing Point (1971) has some nice landscapes
For great visual pallets, check out The Grand Hotel Budapest, and Moonrise Kingdom by Wes Anderson, very stunning.

Half Light with Demi Moore has very beautiful Welsh coastal scenery. Although if I remember correctly it was set in Scotland.
