Only in dreams can he see the wheat fields and hear beautiful music.
The good, the bad, and the ugly
There is no other western that can compare with The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. Every phrase in the movie became popular, every scene became classic.

Will it be possible to create a perfect film? A film where a deep message, an amazing plot, and a spectacular photography work coexist in full harmony? James Cameron decided yes, and created Avatar. It is not just a movie. It is the whole world. Huge, unknown, attractive, new. Here everything is beautiful: the extraordinarily beautiful nature, the incredible animals and insects … But it is better that you see it with your own eyes. Better to see it than to read a hundred reviews on the Internet.

It is a film that extremely realistically shows the spirit of medieval Japan. In it, there is no place for the Hollywood scenery, everything looks so natural that the public begins to believe it. The charismatic samurai, a delicate love story, the Japanese-style fight scenes, the social themes, and the deep psychological overtones leave you with a special “flavor” after watching the film.
Once upon a Time in America
Sergio Leone took 20 long years to fully design the idea for this film and how to carry it out. But the wait was worth it, in all these years he “shot” the tape in his head so many times that the end result was a perfect film, free of any kind of flaw.
One of the few films that do not have anything of heroism and exaggeration, that shows war as it is: with all its cruelty, meaninglessness, and terror, where human life is worth nothing.

The Cloud Atlas Cloud Atlas
The cloud atlas shows that all boundaries and limits are conditional. Through the centuries we commit the same ill-thought-out acts, we sink into our own mistakes and failures. Choosing between freedom and slavery, we must always consider the consequences. By changing one thing, we change another because “everything is connected.”
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
F. Scott Fitzgerald’s brilliant tale was brought to the big screen in David Fincher’s film, and the film was actually more interesting than the tale. The film undoubtedly leaves a lot to think about. It is surprising that such a complex and unusual film comes out of a story of just 40 pages.
