Sam Dunkley’s review published on Letterboxd:
A rain-soaked, drunken and bleak view of life in Hungary after the fall of communism. This film is extremely difficult to review as it demands way too much from me (mostly my attention and patience). As a fan of slow cinema, I feel the run time of Sátántangó is mostly unjustified. There also happens to be a rather uncomfortable scene featuring what some might argue to be animal cruelty, concerning a pet cat. To me, the mis-treament of animals, and people for that matter, for the sake of art, tarnishes the artist intention of such acts.
Ultimately an interesting work, but one I doubt I will ever watch again.
