The Talented Mr. Ripley [1999]

Darkly beautiful film; everything works so well, from the cinematography, the music (which fits the amazing style perfectly) to the performances. One of the best ensembles in recent history (or ever), where Jude Law, Cate Blanchett and Philip Seymour Hoffman stand out. A story about a sick man. A jazz compilation. An Italian travelogue. The Talented Mr. Ripley is all those things and also the kind of film Alfred Hitchcock might’ve made if he lived right now.
