Exotica (Egoyan, 1994)

Mia Kirshner’s sad and broken pantomime to the hopeless lyrics of Leonard Cohen, make for one of the more subtly tragic scenes in recent film history.

The Red Shoes (Powell and Pressburger, 1948)

The Red Shoes is the most visually impressive use of dance and music in film history. The blending of fantasy and reality during the ballet scenes is gorgeous.

There is a second part to this ballet scene on youtube as well, but for whatever reason I could not post it. I encourage you to watch it. In fact, get the movie and watch the whole thing.
