This movie is brilliant and I love it, but imagining a theater full of unsuspecting movie goers having to watch this is the funniest thing in the world. It’s a movie that drags you in with methodically long and static shots. Hey, do you like the railway scene in Stalker? How about when Rooney Mara ate that whole pie in A Ghost Story? Well Jeanne Dielman is a movie comprised entirely of shots/scenes like that. It’s obviously not going to be for everyone, but those who can get into its dull rhythms have a treat in store for them.
