Movies With a Bad Story But Great Cinematography

Team FC

Saltburn (2023) - Amazon Prime Video

Saltburn unfortunately is mostly glitter and not much substance. The cinematography too enamored with its own beauty at times, sustains the atmosphere of the summer and the emotions which are rather lackluster in the script.

Blue Is the Warmest Color (2013) - Unavailable

Blue Is the Warmest Color is by no accounts a bad film but it is not a cup of tea for everyone. The screenplay tends to stretch which leads to it seeming unassuming at times. However, the visual grammar is quite intricate, valuing every pause and look.

Cobalt Blue (2022) - Netflix

Every shot in Netflix's Cobalt Blue is sirenic and almost like a painting. The colors wheatear through the surroundings or costume is employed beautifully. The story however is deluded, where it presents it self almost as a deepfake of "Call Me By Your Name".

Sucker Punch (2011) - Amazon Prime Video (Rent)

Sucker Punch is the most extreme of the title of this list - a film that is eye-poppingly beautiful with its CGI enhanced cinematography while also having one of the most indecipherable plots in contemporary Hollywood history.

Clay Enos

Don't Worry Darling (2022) - Netflix

The dystopian world of Don't Worry Darling is sustained through its visuals where it presents the vastness and smallness sensibly. While the filmmaker had everything of the best quality at her disposal the story was quite tangled within itself.
