What movie do you think has the best cinematography? To me, i think that cinematography is the most important thing in the movie.

Couple of movies:

The Shining Full metal Jacket Saving Private Ryan (The best one so far) Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind Fargo

Dario Argento's Suspiria I think. Wild use of colors and as sharp as a tack. Other than that I think Lost in Translation was pretty cool. Napoleon Dynamite also looked really fantastic.

Most movies by Akira Kurosawa have excellent cinematography. They are black&white but still much better than most modern movies. Sergio Leone is also very impressive. His typhical close shots on sweaty,dirty faces for example are great.

i can think of Sergei Parajanov's "The color of pomegranates" very surreal use of ligth and costumes , it is so cool Juno Reactor used it for their music video "God is God" there is also Fellinis "la dolce vita" whose visuals are always either 60's hip or decadent "1984" was also very visually powerfull as well as Kubrick's "2001,a space odysey"
