Might I suggest some Netflix choices?
Visually stunning, The Fall offers art without too much art geek obnoxiousness.
Kind of a Russian thriller with a style a la Matrix, Nightwatch and its sequel Daywatch. I didn't invest too much into following the supernatural plot, but I still enjoyed.
Mongol was made by a Russian director using mainly locals for the cast. I can't speak for historical accuracy, but being Genghis Khan didn't look all that fun.
And for equal parts martial arts and plain art, Hero (English Title) was worth the time.
