Critics reviews

One’s ordinary life is significantly disrupted—even unhinged—by the process of taking it all in. Even some of my customary critical reflexes were altered, because the experience of duration changes everything. For to agree to see a film of this length is of necessity to step off the conveyor belt of life and to grant an importance to art as a reflection of life that’s fundamentally at odds with the conventional consumption patterns of moviegoing.
