La cicatrice intérieure (Philippe Garrel, 1972) - This classic is, of course, not only one of major films about pictorial scale and duration, but it also seems really resonant on a mythic level. Its images and tones precede concepts or semantics, which is when this poetic mode of cinema is unleashed (even if people may disagree about which works do it most effectively or expansively). I've still never seen this on the big screen, either - something I regret.
