    Gattaca, for its minimalistic style.
    A Clockwork Orange, well,it's pure Kubrick and I love that.
    The Empire Strikes Backs, the sets look amazing, impecable and has a timeless quality which doesn't no to make it look "old" for 99% of the time.
  2. Neon Demon pushes some boundaries as well. I think you'll enjoy it if you like his films.

    I'll be on the lookout. It should be out on DVD soon if it isn't already. I follow this site And So it Begins... » and generally agree with his assessments. He gave it a really positive review, so I'm excited to see it.

    All my favorites have been mentioned I think. I like the epics and Westerns, where nature plays the part.

    I'll just add Raiders of the lost ark. Maybe it's been named and I just missed it

    Agreed, but the most recent Blu-Ray was in general way too dark.

    Mullholland Drive, don't think it's been mentioned yet, would make my list. Amazing film, the whole look of thing is very stylish. One of those films where the discussion afterwards lasted a lot longer than the film itself.

    Love ACO. I always though Kubrick would have made a great interior designer.

    Avatar is stunning. The Passion Of The Christ is also another good one. A River Runs Through It and Legends Of The Fall are also great because of the setting.

    I agree with many of the titles that have been mentioned already so I will add one that I think has not been mentioned yet.

    Nebraska - I found many scenes in this film visually captivating in an understated way, along with fact that i really enjoyed to story.

    I saw this last night and you ain't kidding. Hard to watch, it was so dark.

    It was also missing a critical snippet of dialogue, when Magua and the French general conspire to attack the surrendered English forces.

    After explaining his blood feud, Magua asks the French general if he believes Munro's forces will leave the continent per the terms of surrender.

    What's missing is the French general's response that Colonel Munro would honor the terms. Then there is a dramatic pause, and the French general says that Munro's superior, Webb, will not.

    The Blu-ray picks the conversation after this turnabout, as the general explains he will have to fight the same men again.

    I always thought that snippet was a very effective and necessary moment in the movie, explaining a key detail. We had just seen the French general offer respect and compliments to Munro, and that snippet indicates it wasn't all diplomacy. It also reinforces our poorer opinion of Webb, who refused to send his troops to rescue Munro's forces.

    The creators saved all of five seconds with this deletion, and lost plenty. Why?
