"Intentionally Anachronistic" Movies

← See all keywords

Films that intentionally mix elements from different time periods. This can be done for many reasons, including simply for laughs, like in Your Highness. Or it can be used to create a world that is both similar and alien, like in Brazil. Perhaps the use of modern elements in an otherwise historical movie is used to point out this history is repeating itself today, like in Walker. Or sometimes it is just purely for style, like in Moulin Rouge.
