Dear Filmmakers,

I understand that this might have been discussed, but I had no luck in searching for it.

Can you give me a list of some of the best films that are mainly visually and musicly motivated. They have to tell the story with little character to character interaction and little to no dialogue. Something that trails a character and reveals his emotions in a very visual and musicly motivated way. Even short films would help.


I would really appreciate it if you could help me out. This is very important,

first to come to mind is nic roeg's walkabout. it conveys some pretty sophisticated concepts with little dialogue, and some of the most sophisticated sequences have zero dialogue.

Check out any Terrence Malick film, specially "Days of Heaven" and "The New World".



Try also Kubrick's "2001".

Thanks everyone.

Remember that it has to be something that TRAILS A CHARACTER and reveals his EMOTIONS in a very visual and musicly motivated way.

Hi,

I think the most visual directors working today are from East Asia. The first name that springs to mind is Taiwanese director Tsai Ming-liang, who uses almost no dialogue, and when his characters do speak, they do so in song and music (a strange concept, I know, but it really works well).

You should try watching 'The Wayward Cloud', about a frustrated porno actor. If you're more patient and are not afraid of "slow" movies, you should also try 'The Hole'.

Hope this helps.


Best regards,
Nitay
