    Son of Saul

    The stench of death fills the air,
    Clenching my nostrils,
    I look on in despair,
    Dragging them, lifting them,
    Piling them, burning them.

    No digging required,
    Their ashes are a token of hatred.
    I am a conveyer belt,
    Shifting back and forth,
    My attention heads south,
    While my thoughts head north.

    I was numb to the core,

Going into this film after seeing a preview, I thought it looked promising and would be interesting from a historical standpoint. However, these were the exact same points I made about his previous work, “BlacKkKlansman”, which I wasn’t a huge fan…

    Werckmeister Harmonies

    A Hollow, Melancholy World

    Hungarian filmmaker, ‘Bela Tarr’ is known for creating a pale atmosphere that singles out the audience and makes them stare at the scene, marvelling at it in utter befuddlement. This is reflected in his stories, characters, cinematography and worlds. Bela Tarr creates a vision of his own.

    I watched “Werckmeister Harmonies” roughly two months ago and I cannot get it out of my head. This is unspoken, masterful art. What Tarr does with his own unique…
