Ke Ke Xi Li: Mountain Patrol -- make sure you dont get the cheap version or else it will be more of a visual nightmare

Seven Swords -- the movie is watchable, the scenery is incredible.  too bad the uncut version isnt available on DVD

no, that is the movie i am referring to.  that release is the uncut version as it was released at the international film festivals.  in essence its the uncut version of the cut version.  the version im referring to has a runtime around 240 minutes. 

the 2 and a half hour version is pretty choppy at times and lacks quite a bit og the quote-boring-unquote character development.  from what i have heard, it will be at least 2 yrs before the true uncut one is released on DVD, if ever.

the cut one is very watchable, but its not the smoothest cutting i have ever seen.

Alright, good to know that there is a longer version of the film.  I was actually looking into getting the Uncut version that I mentioned but now that I know that there is a longer version, I can wait and hopefully it will be released sometime in the near future.

17 months later, does anyone have anything new to weigh in with?

I know Pan's Labyrinth fits the bill, and although I've not seen it (yet), I'm quite certain 300 fits the billing superbly.

Saw 300 two days ago; awesome, visually stunning with excellent performances all round. Went with a mate and he had to leave the theatre for a while; it was too visually visceral for him; but he did come back after his 'break'. Cool Film!

Thankyou for the tips so far, and keep them coming!

A few there I would never have gone near otherwise (though What Dreams May Come will be watched now).  A few I've seen, and a few I've intended to see so will have to track those down for certain now.  It is interesting to see that there are so many different ideas of what constitutes a visual feast too.


Dances with Wolves is one of the most stunning pieces of cinematography I've seen in a long time.

The first time I saw any Moulin Rouge I hated what I saw and left the room in disgust.  Many months later I started from the beginning and loved it.  My kind of zany!

I really enjoyed Aeon Flux.  Not too convoluted (as to detract from the visuals), but strong enough to hold my interest.  Ultraviolet on the other hand.   

House of Flying Daggers is still on my "To Watch" list.  I loved Mirrormask, even though the effects had me worried when I'd only seen trailers.  What a truly unique visual experience that turned out to be!
