First of all, let me say how happy I am to find this forum. We spend so much time here talking about the technology, the different vendor brands, the gigabytes and megapixels... that I sometimes lose track of, well, the aesthetic part.

Back to the topic at hand, a movie I can think of is "Picnic at hanging rock", by Peter Weir. The first time I saw it was on TV, with commercial breaks and family talking around, and it was pretty much "meh", despite all the critics I had read talking wonders about it. A few years later I saw it properly, in a theater, and could finally appreciate the beautiful/spooky atmosphere that Weir was getting at. Of course, all movies lose something when seen on TV, but I've seldom found one less adequate to be appreciated on a small screen.
