Favorite Movies to Relax to?

Does anyone have any recommendations for relaxing movies? Like the quiet, visually beautiful, surreal kind of films that you can just lose yourself in like The Fall (2006), Barry Lyndon, Pan's Labyrinth, or Terrence Malick films (Badlands, Days of Heaven, The New World, The Tree of Life, The Thin Red Line, To The Wonder...). I hope I was specific enough with my examples. Thanks a lot!

The recent release Mr. Turner is pretty good for that. I find all the Middle Earth films relaxing to watch as well despite all the excitement.

The Last Lullaby. Just the right amount of dialogue, minimal makeup. The actors look like real people.

I own this movie and like to watch it every so often.

probably anything directed by Richard Linklater. A lot of his films are really "chill" if that makes sense.

For me, my favorite movies to relax are:
- A river runs through it
- Lord of the Rings
- Gods and Monsters
- The tree of life
- Casino (1995)

This may seem odd, but my go-to movie for relaxation is Jurassic Park. I've seen it well over 100 times since I first saw it 1993. It's great for me because it dredges up so many feelings of nostalgia. Every time I turn it on I am swept back to my childhood. No matter what is going on in my life, if I am watching Jurassic Park, I am elated.

a nice romantic comedy. While you were sleeping perhaps. Or movies just about life, like the good girl.
