A couple of nights ago, I watched the movie "Blow Up" with Vanessa Redgrave. The movie is about this photographer who by photographing this couple in a park, finds a dead body on one of his shots (wich explains why the woman chased him to get the roll of film in his camera). Then there is a cool scene where the Yardbirds play this gig where everybody's smoking weed and Jeff Beck breaks his guitar after his amp starts failing on him. Cool movie.

I was wondering if any of you have a cool movie that evolves around photography that they could include in this list. Old or recent.

Day for Night takes place during the filming of a movie. There's an episode of Columbo (guest-starring Dick Van Dyke) which revolves around photography. There's a funny scene in A Hard Day's Night involving cameras.

Can't have a thread like this without mentioning "Memento"

Sure, he's just using a Polaroid, but that's still photography.. and in some circles, it's a very strong form of photography.

Has anyone here seen City of God? Just curious...

Spiderman? Peter Parker does get a lot of shots of that guy.

Seriously, isn't The Bridges of Madison County about a photographer?

I have to admit I have not. But I'll sure look for it next time I go the video store.

Sounds good. Just so you all know, its based on a true story. A quick synopisis:

Two boys growing up in a violent neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro take different paths: one becomes a photographer, the other a drug dealer.

Someone Has to Shoot the Picture

I saw this one quite a few years ago. It's a pretty heavy storyline, but I like a good drama from time to time.

One Hour Photo (very good and some excellent mundane snaps!)
Tesis (subtitled) - excellent story about a murder discovered on video

edit - GM beat me to it to One Hour Photo!

Oh it's charades now.... let me see "nothing to see here" sounds like star wars. Now that had those spy droids flying around so I guess that could qualify as a camera movie at a stretch .
