87 master and commander: the far side of the world (weir, 2003)

Alongside Cold Mountain, Weir's loose yet robust adaptation of Patrick O'Brian's first Aubrey/Maturin novel is my favorite costumer-not-made-by-a-certified-"auteur" of the last ten years. Nothing more or less than a damned impressive piece of work, and very entertaining. A clean and sober - yet not un-rollicking - answer to Verbinski's Caribbean trilogy.
