Photography Movies

Someone brought up movies in which a character is a photographer (or somehow in that milieu) the other day, and I begin to think about two things:

1. Movies that are great inspiration visually (some have terrible plot lines and/or acting but are worth watching)
2. Movie that have photography in them

Since lists are such fun, here I go:

1.
The Man Who Fell to Earth
Badlands
Days of Heaven
The Portrait of a Lady
Twin Peaks (TV Series ONLY)
Clockwork Orange
City of Lost Children
Alien
Aliens
Blade Runner
Love & Death
Ladies & Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains
Sympathy for Lady Vengence
Eraserhead
Lisztomania
Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1970's version)
Magnificent Obsession
Imitation of Life
Persona
The Rolling Stones' Rock n' Roll Circus
Julien Donkey-Boy
Gummo


2.
The Eyes of Laura Mars
The Sentinel (1970's version)
Fur
Blow-Up
Pecker
Rear Window

Two more that come to mind in the latter category are Closer and Salvador.

In the former how about The Motorcycle Diaries? It captures both the wide angled landscapes and close-ups so beautifully.
