The Big Lebowski by the Coen brothers is an ode to the mid-century lifestyle indeed! It has incredible architectural nuances all over the movie that make it such a rewarding experience. However, the most curious thing about The Big Lebowski is that the whole thing starts because of… a stolen rug.

Labeled as a “psychedelic melodrama”, Enter the Void by Gaspar Noé is all about flashing colors and organic patterns. Set in Tokyo, this movie is as hypnotizing as it gets. In fact, there are a few attributes we can relate to this movie – it’s provocative, extreme and mad. Who doesn’t love a bit of madness here and there?

Old but gold! 2001: A Space Odyssey by Stanley Kubrick really raised the bar in the cinematic industry and it still does. A work of intense perfectionism and aesthetical superiority, this movie is like retro-futurism turned reality. We will always remember this particular scene, in this particular bedroom.

The Holy Mountain is what happens when Surrealism meets fantasy. Directed by Alejandro Jodorowsky, everything about this movie is exuberant and eye-catching. It tells the story of a Christ-like character, a powerful alchemist and seven materialistic figures that are looking for the Holy Mountain, where they hope to achieve enlightenment. It was produced by Yoko Ono and John Lennon.

Once again by the visionary Stanley Kubrick, The Shining is probably the scariest horror movie ever – but that’s not why we chose it. The Shining is set in an isolated yet mesmerizing hotel in western North America, whose interior design you will certainly not forget. This is a mandatory watch for those who love hospitality interiors.
