Architecture in Movies

More attention should be paid to the background in movies. Wonderful examples of historic architecture are often portrayed. Here are only a few:

Ricardo Bofill apartment building, seen in Terry Gilliam’s 1975 film Brazil:

Hitchcock’s North by Northwest with Frank Lloyd Wright’s Villa:

Kubrick’s surreal and yet real surroundings:

Bertolucci’s The Conformist, after Alberto Moravia’s great book; one of my favourite writers, a definite must-read. Set in the ever-powerful and charismatic EUR:

bertolucci1-the-conformist-adalberto-libera-palazzo-dei-congresi

bertolucci3-the-conformist

and my all times favourite: Antonioni’s Eclipse – also in EUR
