Lists by viktor-vile
I only add directors whose filmography I have seen more than three films from, but there are exceptions.
Might come up next: Kurosawa, Angelopoulos, Reed, Kaurismäki, Ozu, Hawks, Soderbergh, Visconti, Payne, Altman, Carax, Lubitsch, Marker
Most represented directors on the list:
4 films: von Trier, Gus van Sant,
3 films: Haneke, Malick, The Dardenne Bros, PT Anderson, Linklater, Herzog, Almodovar
When the colors, the landscapes, the small things the camera catches and the camera work all fusions and suits the mood of the film, then you know you have found true aesthetic film-beauty. All the listed films have cinematography fitting for the sentiment in the film, or just pure aesthtic beauty.
