Truly great movies leave indelible marks. It may be through an emotional connection to the story. It may be through a remarkable performance or a signature scene. But it could also be through the brilliant imagery that films carves into your mind. That’s what this feature is all about – highlighting great images from great movies.
One of the finest films ever made and I never get tired of seeing it whenever it’s on TV.
I LOVE reading that. It is one of my very favorites. I love everything about it. And don’t you think it is another film that isn’t regarded as highly as it should be by many?
It should be given more consideration as it is just this film that managed to do so much as it’s probably my favorite film by Michael Mann.
Agreed. It just bugs me that the film isn’t talked about as much as many others from that same time period. It deserves it.
Them folks in them pictures you showed need to go back to where they come from and Trump is going to make sure they get there.
Baffling. I have idea how to respond to that.
Best to just leave it be.
The score matches the images in its impressiveness. Great cast as well. I like the selection of images you shared. Now I have the love theme in my head.
Oh the score is so incredible. I had a post about it a few weeks ago and mentioned how a portion of it was used in my wedding. This may be a little bold, but it’s my favorite movie score. Magical
I can’t believe I have never seen this. Of course, the casting of DDL makes me think twice a little. Is he meant to be a Mohican?
Adopted white son and brother to Mohicans. DDL is excellent as expected but so is the whole film. I’ve written recently about it containing my favorite score of all-time. Well this is one of my favorite films of all time. I have no problem saying that. DEFINITELY see it!
Really love this film. Breathtaking scenes and action. Great one to highlight, Keith.
Thank you! An all-time favorite of mine and an easy candidate for the ‘Great Images’ treatment. I mean one stunning shot after another spanning a variety of kinds. Love it to death.
Boy, haven’t seen this in forever. Great post.
Appreciate it. I find myself watching it at least once a year. Absolutely adore everything about this movie. Really clicked with me on every level.
Stop it…I JUST watched this and was posting images on twitter yesterday! Such a fantastic movie that doesn’t feel too dated. The imagery is just breathtaking, especially the scene of Alice before she jumps off the cliff.
Agree on every point! That scene with Alice is simply incredible. The entire buildup to that point is so perfect. And I love that it doesn’t use any sound other than that beautiful but haunting music.
I enjoyed the novel, but haven’t yet seen any of the adaptions.
This is truly one of my all-time favorites.
