I almost died….
Wow seven hours of film! Now tbh I wasn’t rlly prepared for this journey, but damn it was something…
First off happy birthday Bela Tarr an amazing filmmaker (even tho I’ve seen only 2 of his work😅) Satantago maybe have been the best movie I’ve seen in my life. (next to The Muppets)
Usually I’m not the biggest fan of long ass movies like this because I can’t imagine myself sitting in a seat and watching a film for 7 hours, but I somehow did it. From the atmosphere to the cinematography the film has a very strange feel to it, and it’s prob something imma have to get used to when watching Tarr’s work in the future. I don’t wanna talk to much about this movie bc I really want people to experience this film.
I actually don’t feel the need to rate this movie because I don’t see it as a film, I see it more as a trip to an art house or a museum. Basically what I’m saying is that your are looking and observing a painting from an incredible artist. That’s just how I felt, objectively I guess it’s a 5/5 🤷♂️. But non the less the best 7 hours you can give to someone who loves film :))
