These establishing shots. They. Are. GORGEOUS. Hands down my favorite establishing shots ever. On par with the opening establishing shots of Scotland in Braveheart.
I just recently watched Atonement (about 5 years on the late side, but at least I finally saw it) The movie is gorgeous, there are so many shots that I like. But I have to post the steady cam Dunkirk scene.
I can't deny Wally Pfister's work. Hong Kong shots are incredible. There is so much I like about The Dark Knight (how can you not)! I have always thought the the shot at 1.21was really cool!
