The Beauty of Film

Flavorwire has posted a video entitled “135 Shots That Will Restore Your Faith in Cinema.” This video is an excellent reminder to screenwriters that our words become moving images, and that we’ve chosen this medium because we understand that words have power that images do not and images have power that words do not. Together… well, I think Ingrid Bergman said it best:

Film as dream, film as music. No art passes our conscience in the way film does, and goes directly to our feelings, deep down into the dark rooms of our souls.

Watch the video below, then go to the original article to see the list of all the films sampled.
