A film that was praised by critics and award shows, it won Best Picture in 2006. I love this film not necessarily for its story, but for its cinematography.

In the final sequence of the movie, one of our main characters drops off a load of immigrants onto a shopping street in LA. One of the immigrants, dirty from head to toe, stands in front of a CD store and stares into the window. This particular shot I remember very well, what a way to display this immense contrast between worlds:
