BladeRunner - and the scene in Tyrell's office where Deckard is just about to carry out the Voight-Kampf test on Rachel.

The lighting & ambience is perfect!

That's one of those things where my creative ignorance gets in the way. While I have no doubt that more attentive folks got a lot out of that scene, I just thought, "man, it's dark in there". I've always had trouble appreciating things like that the way they're intended

Oh, the ending to "Primal Fear". I love Ed Norton.

There are so, so many.

Here's one that comes immediately to mind.

One shot. One incredible shot. From Antonioni's The Passenger, starring Jack Nicholson.
[the shot begins at the 1:02 mark of the video and lasts for the duration]

The Realm of the Dwarrowdelf (Lord of the Rings)


This scene always sends shivers down my spine; perhaps because of the haunting score and the immenseness of the Dwarrowdelf realm. Good lighting too.

Oh, I just thought of some more:

The scene in Life is Beautiful when the father marches off acting silly in front of his son - at the end of Nazi rifle.

In O Brother Where Art Thou - the scene when Delmar thinks that Pete has been turned into a frog.

I love the scene in Saturday Night Fever when John Travolta dances solo at the Disco !

I remember seeing this movie at a big theater on a huge screen, I went with all my friends in 1977, we were in awe watching the dancing ! Also, really excited because once this movie was released Disco's were everywhere - it was Disco Fever ! - it was a Blast !
