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:



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