Yeh Roger Deakins is a great DP I mean True Grit was fucking stunning to look at. Although I am always rather biased toward scorsese I genuiely think his films are almost always great looking: Bringing out the Dead, Goodfellas, The Aviator, Cape Fear to name just a few. As was mentioned before me Kubrick's films also always look impressive.
Um, I disagree but its your opinion yes there are fantastic shot films, especially the ones I listed below but no, I really they are one of the best shot films out there. Of course there are others that are equally great or even better but I still think that LOTR needs to be recognized.
