The direction is just perfect. Every shot is marvellous, every movement of the camera is breathtaking. There is absolutely nothing you could add or subtract. Touch it, and you spoil it. Seriously.
Which version? The original or the director's cut. Surely you prefer one over the other.
But yes, the version I prefer gets 100/100 as well. But there are certainly other perfect films.
But in terms of the eerie look and feel of the film, you're right that nothing else tops it in that respect.
