The Movies of 2013 – a mashup

Lots of fascinating vignettes. Good for fullscreen viewing.

This is a distopian view of life on a planet when no one is living their passion.

Each director has their own style.
After they make several movies it’s possible to see a visual theme repeat across their movies.
Many directors use a specific camera work in each of their movies to tell a part of the story.
Its kind of like their visual signature.
A YouTuber named Kogonada has created a montage of Wes Anderson aerial shots.
