The Famous Artworks That Inspired 15 Films

Flavorwire - There is a fascinating interplay between the visual cultures of film and art. Directors have frequently used imagery from painting and other art forms to shape the look and meaning of their works. Earlier this week, website Philebrity appealed to our inner art history nerd and reminded us of a strong visual influence behind Terrence Malick's 1978 film Days of Heaven. We feature the movie's art world doppelgänger after the jump, along with other artworks that informed frames and entire visual themes in different movies.
