Which movies do the best job of creating a mood, atmosphere?
I’m talking here less about plot, dialogue and character than the presentation or general feel of the movie or of particular scenes. For example, movies like Alien, Star Wars, Blade Runner and Predator convey information in such a way that even if you didn’t speak English, you could be affected by watching them at a non-verbal or even subconscious level. In other words, what movies do the best job of doing the diametrical opposite of an exposition dump? Any insight into how?
