The work of Edward Hopper is a perfect example of the relationship between painting and film. On the one hand, the painter borrowed film images in order to create a painting similar to a frame of a film. Echoes of Hopper's style can be found in films where local architecture, customs and people of America are presented. It is also present in road movies, in its' scenery and message. In the article three films are presented and analysed: Sam Mendes' 'Road to Perdition', Peter Bogdanovich's 'The Last Picture Show', and Clint Eastwood's 'The Bridges of Madison County'. Those films enter a dialogue with Hopper's paintings, although not necessarily in a self-conscious way. The films contain themes typical of Hopper's work: empty landscapes, deserted towns and still, lonely people with expressionless faces.
