How have I never looked at this thread before? I haven't seen a really good, capital M Movie in a while, I'm talking artistically valuable and edifying and not just good in the popcorn type of way. Looking at my criticker account (I will never switch to Letterboxd!) here's the last few movies of the type I'm talking about:

In The Mood For Love
Portrait Of A Lady On Fire
Harakiri
A Hidden Life
Parasite
First Reformed
Eyes Wide Shut

Probably very vague but just hit me with something, ideally not by the same director.

Yay those are some great recs! Seen and loved Burning, Under The Skin and The Handmaiden so I know y'all trustworthy.
Sad that Little Women isn't streaming yet but I'll definitely catch that one eventually.

Wind River

edit: Sorry, it's Wyoming I'm reading. EU failure here.

I was going to suggest this one too cause it's really good, and yeah not technically but functionally identical to what OP wants.

Liquid Sky is absolutely great but it's not a fun group watch at all.

I suggest Robowar or Tammy and the T-Rex (the gore cut).

Any excuse to post the Robowar score:

I want something with fog, sweaters, seaside, and maybe a fishing village. Ideally something spooky, but not necessarily. Perhaps a melancholic atmosphere, but not necessarily.

Already seen but would fit the bill: The Lighthouse, The Fog, The Wicker Man, and a bunch of BBC folk horror.

Cold Skin (meh), Dead and Buried (yess).

edit: Dagon!

The Dark Valley (2014) is a western set in the Austrian alps, can't get any more snowy/mountainy.

Thanks! Also, recommendations for grand/"epic" romantic movies (like The Fountain)?

Tree of Life or A Hidden Life by Terence Malick might fit?

13th Warrior is so good.

Not exaclty what you might be looking for, but maybe check out Ken Russell's The Devils or Paul Verhoeven's Flesh + Blood?

edit: The CGI Beowulf is way better than its reputation, and also the Christopher Lambert Beowulf is just nuts.

The only good one is One Cut of the Dead but it's Japanese. I hear Blood Quantum is good too.

Knife + Heart sounds interesting, and reminds me of Raw, a french movie about a vegan student with some issues. Recommended if you like psycho-horror.


Haha there is VERY little overlap between Knife + Heart but it would be hilarious going in expecting that.

Raw is really good tho, highly recommended.
