This is the list of modern films that were shot in the Academy Ratio (1:37:1 or 1:33:1) This ratio of squarer framing is rarely used for the movies in the recent years.

Which of these films, makes the best use of this aspect ratio?

Note: The list contains movies after 2000. Documentaries and Short films are not added.

May I suggest some edits?

This is a list of modern films that were shot in the Academy Ratio (1:37:1 or 1:33:1). This ratio of square framing is rarely used for movies in recent years.

Thanks Jess!

I've added 'a' and removed 'the' at the places you mentioned. 

But, this ratio is not exactly square (1:1) like the one used in Xavier Dolan's 'Mommy'.
That's why, I said 'squarer' framing.

Oh, I didn't realize 'squarer' was a word, but apparently it is. :)

'Cool poll and a lot of interesting films. My vote will go to Fish Tank. I love that film and I also think it uses that unusual ratio to great effect.

May I suggest one small edit?

Which of these films makes the best use of this aspect ratio?

(I just removed the comma between "films" and "makes.")

Surprise...Surprise! I would pick the same. What a brilliant film. Have you heard how she picked Katie or even Sasha from American Honey? It's really interesting!

Andrea Arnold seems to be in love with this aspect ratio. Many times, it perfectly depicts the mental state of the characters or the limited space they had to grow, a limitation in a way and still a lot of energy.

I don't know most of them. It would be false to choose one, even if i know, it's brillant. Maybe i know 2 or three of them, so i don't want to vote. Maybe one of them i don't know may be better?
