The 10 Most Beautiful Movies of All Time, in One Video Countdown

The folks at CineFix have often tackled broad themes in their countdown videos, but their latest attempts to quantify a particularly abstract quality: beauty. Obviously, there are many beautiful movies, and no objective way to parse the top 10. But as usual, CineFix’s list is detailed and diverse, aware of a ranking’s inherent futility yet intent on honoring everything from the one-shot wizardry of Russian Ark to the black-and-white haze of Manhattan.

One quibble: Despite dozens being worthy, not a single animated movie makes the cut, an omission sure to be mourned by anyone who’s seen a Miyazaki film.
