also, I really like the mood (not the whole flick) of Robert Downey Junior's Sherlock Holmes; meaning Victorian (Edwardian?) England setting but with a good amount of set exploration and dark/hero-centric plot.
any recommendations? I saw A Room with A View but obviously it's a romantic drama, not that I dislike it
If you like comics, the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is in that vein. The movie is godawful, though. Avoid it.
