Satantango ★★★★★

A desolate landscape. A village overrun by greed and misery, succumbing to the fall of communism. People living in an endless cycle of misery, shown through recurring moments viewed from different perspectives. An abyss of negative space embraced to the fullest. Dreadfully slow and tedious in its pace, yet equally hypnotic and entrancing in its imagery. Things happen and they linger, certain moments have an emotionally draining effect, bringing out things I've never felt before. I feel like I transcended into the bleak and depressing atmosphere that was shown, a foreign and cursed place that I was suffocated in. I feel crushed. The film fades to black and I'm left in the darkness to pick up the pieces and figure it all out. I'm a mess. I've never witnessed anything else like this. These 7 hours will live with me forever.
