FotoVisura Features » 10 films of the last decade that every photographer should see

This was not an easy list to make. Many considerations entered into my selections, and while my top 10 are not necessarily my favorite films of the decade (though a couple undoubtedly are) I have selected them for their relevance to the creation of images by photographers today. Movies are a photographic medium (motion pictures) and should be consumed by photographers for the same reasons we look at painting, sculpture, architecture, theatre, and the work of our colleagues; to be inspired, to be moved, to find something great to rip off (or, if you prefer, to dialogue with in our own work). But in recent years, the reasons to watch lots of films have been compounded by the fact that photographers, more and more, are being asked to make what the industry is now calling “motion content”, or what I call, movies.
