You know, the movie "Up" has gotten me to thinking about how many of the classic films we know and love feature balloons. I think this video says it all.

When are we going to get the AFI tribute to the 100 Greatest Balloon Movies?

Wasn't there a balloon scene in Rat Race? I think the cow gets tangled up in it. One of the funniest movies I've seen!

That video was great. The final Casablanca scene was the best!

a very overlooked and underrated film i just watched: 'Arizona Dream' - with Johnny Depp and Vincent Gallo.

there's a symbolic red balloon floating around in numerous scenes. i highly recommend this one if you like directing work very akin to that of Terry Gilliam. it's almost like the movie Jesus' Son as if Gilliam directed it.

In M, when the little girl's abduction is signified by the balloon floating away.

Does anyone remember the episode of The Critic where Jay takes his son to see The Red Balloon II and is so relieved that he can see a foreign film instead of American crap, and it ends up being an action movie. "Red Balloon: Revenge of the Balloon" or something like that was the name of it.

First scene that came to my mind when I saw this thread.
