Baraka
You got that right.

Except for those bits with the chickens.
Excellent suggestion, but don't watch yet it if you can't see it on Blu-Ray. The new Baraka release is easily the highest quality Blu-Ray release ever. The 65mm negative was scanned at 8K (2x digital cinema resolution) to create the digital intermediate source for the disc.
I agree, I also have the Blu-Ray. It is a breathtakingly beautiful film (chickens notwithstanding). Although of the two previous standard def DVD releases, the second one was also very good.

Probably my favorite part of the whole film was the scenes in the favela. Especially the music ("Wipala").

Another life-affirming film: The Pride of the Yankees
