I now understand the hatred of the hipster crowd. Gale Anne Hurd was in attendance. She left early.
I only saw about an hour and a half of this epic before it left Mubi, and how I regret not finishing it. It's virtually impossible to see at the moment, legally or not, insofar as I can tell. Any tips on how to view it, and also how to give money to it, are welcome in the comments.
Also: to realize, retroactively, that the first Diaz film I saw, NORTE: THE END OF HISTORY, is, at four hours, one of the short ones.
