The 25 Most Visually Stunning Black-And-White Movies of All Time

"While the beauty of black-and-white film photography has been out of fashion for some time, at least amongst popular tastes, there is still a lot of beauty and breadth to be found and fawned over for casual viewers, cinéastes, and filmmakers.
Continuing Taste of Cinema's tireless and exciting search for the most visually exquisite black and white films "of all time" has been no easy charge, though several films stood out straight away.
The assembled list presented here is very close to definitive, but it is also deliberately varied to include modern films, and films far outside the innovation of noirs (so many of the finest black-and-white films exist in this genre, we wanted to include only the essentials and cast a wider net beyond just them), offering up in ascending order films of dazzling depth, stirring symmetry, impeccable production design, gorgeous framing, and assured grace. Enjoy!"
