Mission, The (1986) 
"The Mission" by Yojimbo
3/4 stars

An ex slave trader seeking penance after murdering his brother in a jealous rage joins a Jesuit mission in the South American jungle , but when the colonial interests of the outside world threaten their peaceful existence he takes up arms once more. It's impossible to put the experience of watching this film into words. It's so stunning to look at I had to double check the release date; I never thought something this beautiful could be made in 1986, the year of Falcon Crest, Top Gun and Slippery When Wet. The locations, the photography and Ennio Morricone's wonderful score come together to create a visual and aural work of art. This combined with typically fine performances from Robert DeNiro and Jeremy Irons in an intelligent story of the destructive influences of colonialism make this a film that was bound to scoop up a plethora of awards and understandably so. I perhaps didn't get as involved emotionally with the characters as much as the story deserved, but still it's a stunning cinematic experience in all other departments.
