SeventhAr7,

This is pure torture to pick just one :P And I'm extremely happy a shot from "Pleasantville" made the cut - I think it's one of the most underrated films of the past 25 years.

For now I'll say Casablanca but could easily go with 20 others. Great list here.

Great pick and yeah, they are all amazing shots.

I'm just passing the work of others to imdb, merits to the author of the article and creator of the video :)

SeventhAr7,

Great images and a great idea for a poll. If/when this poll goes live this would be a worthy candidate for the IMDb Home Page pending changing the order of the choices. For the poll to be eligible, the first five images should crop well for a 1 by 2 aspect ratio and be suitable for a general audience. However, images #2 and #5 do not crop well.

These other images in your poll are suitable for a general audience and should crop better:

I had forgotten about that scene, as I often fall asleep in the bathtub, for whenever I take a bath.

All these are really great shots. I really like the shots from 2001: A Space Odyssey and The Shining, they excellently create a narrow claustrophobic setting that places the characters in a position where something foreboding looms over them. Similarly, the shot from Apocalypse Now beautifully conveys that same narrow claustrophobia even though it's an exterior shot, but again you sense something foreboding from the stares of the tribespeople. However, my vote will go to the beautiful twin sunset shot from Star Wars- it foreshadows Luke's journey into the vast galaxy and from his expression you see his desperation to discover what lies out from his moisture farming station on Tatooine.

Most of my favourites come after 35:




If this gets posted (which I think it will), you should do one for 36-70 and so on.

Out of the options I'd pick either this:

Or this

yes, unfortunately this can be only 35 options and there are many i would like to include but the beauty is that we can continue the topic

I don't know if I can do this soon because you have to request the images, most of them are not here in imdb. I requested about 30 images for this.

But if this goes live, i will probably continuing the topic
