Midnight Cowboy has a lot of psychadelic visuals that are not only impressive even by today’s standards, but are extremely symbolic. That film is a masterpiece. when you finish the eighth grade you may be allowed to watch it.

The Tears of Black Tiger, probably my fav visually ever

Micehl Gondry’s Eternal Sunshine & Science of Sleep

Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s movies, especially Delicatessen and The City of Lost Children

Kubrick’s movies, especially 2001 and A Clockwork Orange

Scorsese’s movies, Raging being the best

Wong kar Wai’s movies, like Falling Angels, In the Mood For Love, My Blueberry Nights, Chungking Express

Baz Luhrman’s movies, especially Romeo+Juliet

Lock, Stock & Snatch

Psycho

Oldboy

Sin City

12 Monkeys



I may forget a lot…

that asshole comment was uncalled for. if one of us two is immature, it must be you since it seems you took a simple question as a personal insult.
