Beautiful Film Week

Susan posted about a blogging assignment for a week long list of beautiful movies, and I thought that this would be a great motivator for posting every day! It will be a great random list of beauties!

Today's example of beautiful film is Paul Thomas Anderson's 2002 film Punch Drunk Love. It features the amazing artwork of the late Jeremy Blake. Music and colour interludes are seamlessly integrated into the story. P. T. Anderson employs the most amazingly subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) use of light and tension to create this beautiful and funny film.
