Default Please recommend Sensual, Stylish, Exotic movies!

Please recommend me movies having Female Sensuality and also movies having male lead charater's Stylish performance. Take for instance Nicole Kidman in Moulin Rogue (Her make up, Costume, Performance) Natalie Portman in Black Swan and Robert Deniro in Casino (The way he smokes and talks). I am obsessed and like such a lot. I ordered movie "Nine" directed by Rob Marshall last night after watching the trailer just because of the Sensual element and beautiful Cinematography even after knowing the fact that this movie has a bad transfer.

So I hope u get the idea what I am talking about so please suggest as much movies as u can and keep this thread alive as I m sure there will be many people here like me who love such genre.

Thanks.

Bound
AFAIK it was only released on BD in Japan but it's a very good movie and exactly what you're describing.

Body Heat
I'm not particularly crazy about Kathleen Turner or William Hurt but I like the film a lot and it's definitely stylish and sultry and very neo-noir.

Thanks guys I have seen unbearable lightness of being and Bound and loved them a lot but I am not talking about erotic movies in general. Moulin Rogue is PG 13 but I loved it as its more sensual than erotic. Another example is Catherine Zeta Jones in Chicago.

This seems like a very subjective request... So, suggestions may vary...

Sensual/stylish:
Phantom of the Opera
Sin City
The Fall (gorgeous cinematography and costume design)
Bram Stoker's Dracula
L.A. Confidential (Kim Basinger is stunning as Veronica Lake)
Gone With the Wind and Casablanca (one word...CLASSIC)
Legend (another gorgoeusly photographed film and costumes are beautiful, Mia Sara is fairytale pretty when she's a princess and exoticly sexy and dark when she's turning over to the "Dark side")

The Stylish/Coolness factor:
Heat (two ultimately cool actors at the top of their game)
Eastern Promises (Viggo is one slick hard-a** Russian)
Casino Royale (Bond, James Bond...and beautiful Eva Green)
Equilibrium and The Matrix
The Crow (sadly, the Japan import blu is way expensive)
Untouchables
Mesrine: Killer Instinct and the sequal Mesrine: Public Enemy #1 (channels a bit of Godfather vibe...)
Fun Fact: I am the same height ( 5'1'') as Carrie Fisher, Jean Harlow, Holly Hunter, Christina Ricci, Emilie De Ravin, Anna Kendrick, Kristen Bell...yes great things do come in small packages :)

TV: Panasonic ST60 60"
Receiver: Sony STRDH830
Speakers: Klipsch HDT1000

if you want to see really sensual and stylish films then just get into 40's film noir.
simple as that.
those films cannot be touched as far as "sensual" women.
try films like--
Gilda
The Big Sleep
The Blue Dahlia
Out of the Past
The Postman Always Rings Twice (1946)
This Gun's For Hire
Laura
Notorious
Leave Her To Heaven
Angel Face
Niagara

the list could go on and on.
THOSE films have without question the most sensual women and performances ever put on celluloid.
classic film noir was centered around the female, and so the women's roles were often the most important.
There is really no other period in motion picture history where women get such equal billing on such a sustained basis, and certainly those days are, for the most part, long gone.
that fact of equality on screen is one of main things that makes those films so great.

Amanda Seyfried in Chloe.

Julianne Moore in the same movie to a certain extent in it as well.

My top recommendations would be.

1) Sin City
2) American Psycho
3) Casino
4) Godfather
Zero will win, whatever you do.

Definitely check out The Thomas Crown Affair (1999). Pierce Brosnan plays Mr. Crown with the style and panache of Bond while Rene Russo plays a smart and damn sexy detective.

Good stuff!
