Let's post here the movies that we find visually stunning! Even if they may not be good entertainment or may not please any critics, but are simply awesome visually.

I will start with a couple,

1. The Tree Of Life - This is highly philosophical movie that is visual symphony. It has some awe inspiring visuals termed as that of the origins of the known universe and the inception of life on Earth.

2. The usual suspect, The Avatar.

3. Life of PI- Almost every alternate scene I would say

4. Dunkirk - Air combat scenes, bombings look so amazingly well made.

All Terence Malick films are visually hypnotic.

When I used to subscribe to Mubi , a movie whose every frame seemed to just leap out of a windows screensaver , was Papusza. The movie is based on the life of a Gypsy poet , her struggles etc and seemed a tad melodramatic for my liking.

'The Cell' would get my vote. A Psycho Scifi Thriller with No substance on story, but stunning visuals. Some are gruesome. Movie is about entering Psycho killer's mind and treating him.

Watch following with discretion if family/kids around.

There was another movie which was made to look like renaissance painting but I forgot the name.

+1 Saving Private Ryan, The Revenant and Blade Runner 2049. Great movies to show-off your home theatre, too.

On Indian films, Mirzya and Barfi. We have great cinematographers now across the globe. One better than the other.

Some of the choices mentioned here are atrocious. Digital effects do not make a visually stunning movie.
For that one needs a super gifted cinematographer who’s perfectly in sync with a visionary director.

The sixties and seventies have gifted the most visually stunning films till date by some of the greatest filmmakers to have ever worked - Bertolucci’s Il Conformista, Kieslowski’s The Double Life of Veronique, Fellini’s 8.5 ( yes it’s in black and white ) , Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon (special Carl Zeiss lenses had to be invented just for that film ) , Kurosawa’s Ran , Coppola’s The Godfather 1 & 2 are just some examples.
 
Perfect for audiophiles wanting both excellent music quality and flexible operation.
