<< A student is interested in examining the techniques of using still images
in films. Some examples are CITY OF GOLD and THE CIVIL WAR, composed solely
of still images, MAN WITH THE MOVIE CAMERA and BLOW-UP, in which still
images play a major diegetic role. My student and I would appreciate
suggestions of other examples.

The opening of Days of Heaven uses stills to set the mood of the film and I
believe that Nester Almendros (sic?) wrote about the use of them in his book
and how important they were to Malick.
