Candy Cinema

I've curated a list of films that belong to a subgenre I've created titled CANDY CINEMA. Films that have vivid colourful cinematography/production design/costume design/overall art direction as a strong presence in its filmmaking. They tend to use the full spectrum of colour or focus on one particular colour that dominates the film.
Notable recurring filmmakers in the Candy Cinema subgenre include:
- Pressberger & Powell
- Jacques Demy
- Pedro Almodovar
- Dario Argento
- Mario Bava
- Jean Pierre Jeunet
- Wes Anderson
Only live-action or some live-action/animated films (Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Cool World) allowed, otherwise the entire genre would just be animated.
And only including films I've seen. Suggestions in the comments will be watched and added :)
