    Visually Stimulating Film Suggestions

    Hi, as part of my DBT workbook I have to create a relaxation plan of 20 actions I can take to soothe my senses. 10 are to be in the home and 10 I can do whilst I'm out of the home.

    I've got enough to cover each but I feel like some of my ideas aren't the best for me. Could you give some ideas please that will relax me through stimulating sight, smell, sound, taste, touch or hearing?

    One of my home actions is to watch a visually stimulating film, do you have any suggestions for films that have bright colours, animation, stunning scenery, imaginative CGI or an unfamiliar landscape? I have The Cell, Dr Strange, Under the Skin, Kill Bill, Donny Darko.

    Thanks

    For 20 years, Starship Troopers has been the gift that keeps on giving.

    Visually stimulating films are not relaxing or soothing, especially blood and guts. How is that soothing to your senses and state of tranquility?

    lol ^

    How about Life of Pi. That one dings all the senses but smell and taste. Make some popcorn and you'll have those covered too.

    Perhaps not for you, I find them extremely enjoyable and Under the Skin is particularly soothing to me due to the beautiful countryside, Scottish accent, lots of water, floaty weird stuff, absolute captivating weird storyline, natural beauty of the main character, beach waves and shale, nakedness etc and that is a film about an alien sucking the life out of her victims.

    The Cell has lots of guts and disturbing imagery but at the same time the colours and random odd bits are so beautiful I'm captivated.

    Maybe I should look for other films by the directors of films that I love.

    Is it Crouching tiger that has each scene of the film in one colour?

    Firefly might be interesting and entertaining.

    You might like xxxHolic (no it's not x rated...lol) but I really prefer the written manga to the animated series. Has a rather interesting deep meaning if you can get past that it's Japanese animation and can be goofy at times.
