Some older movies make you go “Man, they just don’t make movies like they used to.”
For example, tonight I watched Baz Luhrman’s 1996 Romeo and Juliet and one thing that stood out to me was the visuals of the movie. Overdone colors and costumes, opulent Catholic imagery juxtaposed with a dirty, crime-ridden city on the beach. It’s by no means a great movie but there’s always some intentional little detail for the eye to look at to add density to the setting. I notice a lot of 80s and 90s films seem to have a visual texture that’s missing from many movies made more recently. What are some films that you think have that certain je ne sais quoi which modern movies often lack?
