Not that I would put this under "amazing" by any stretch of the imagination.. but impactful perhaps? God yes. I pretty much thought of this film everytime I went thru underpasses for the next 5 years.

Would truly be weird to got to the Palmer house in Fire Walk With Me.
I think people come from all over the world to visit that house and the owner lets people in as long as they contacted well in advance.

Filming began in February 1975 with principal photography taking six weeks. Locations included Hanging Rock in Victoria, Martindale Hall near Mintaro in rural South Australia, and at the studio of the South Australian Film Corporation in Adelaide.

The talented mr.Ripley made 50s (60s maybe) Italy look ridiculously cool.

The revenant has some of the most breathtaking scenery ever filmed

Tracks shows some stunning Aussie outback


The secret life of Walter Mitty was absolutely gorgeous (music and cinematography)

Heart strings are definitely tugged whenever you watch something like The Big Steal from the early 90s (or earlier films) + the old Melbourne area/streets/freeways that have long since changed or disappeared all together.

The Picnic at Hanging Rock theme is the best.
Very haunting.
Would love to go to the races there.

Yeah, very haunting movie. Loved how they did it based around the landscape.
It what I like about the Return too.. So many scenes with barely a word and atmosphere created in scenery amazing.

That looks like an old V8 rover I used to drive on the left.

Wonder where The Cars that Ate Paris was filmed.
God Australia had some crazy ass movies in 70's.
I had no idea what it was when seen on tv as a kid, but scared the hell out of me.
