Certain movies can be dissected into still photos and the photos are great shots on their own.

 

Here is one project I did on Godzilla to honor the recent death of actor Haruo Nakajima, who portrayed Godzilla.

Until I started to break Godzilla down I never realized how many great stills are in it.

 

Paris, Texas is film has some beautiful scenic shots by Wenders, especially at blue hour.

 

Fellini's La Strada has some strong single frame images.

 

 

What films stand out in your mind for their great 'single image' photography?

Kurosawa's "RAN" with all of the extreme long shots, has always been a favorite of mine.
