Landscape in the Mist is a profound work of art. A film of unparalleled beauty. Poetic and poignant in every sense of word.
Theo Angelopoulos' work here is remarkable. I've never been so sure of giving a perfect rating to any film. This is peak cinema right here. The soothing and gentle camera movements, always at distance but capturing the most deepest of emotions. I'll be thinking about this film a lot. Truly a masterpiece.
I've had my fair share of films with extraordinary run-time and have had a hard time with some of them but I can't say the same for this 7 hour long meticulous masterpiece. Satantango is remarkably compelling and hypnotic. A film of impeccable beauty, poetic and poignant ambience, excellent cinematography and visual storytelling. I consider myself priveleged to have watched this. Such is the class of Bela Tarr's work. I am astound and amazed. Truly a exceptional experience.
