Seven hours is a stretch... but you never know. I remember watching Munch by Watkims and expecting to split it into two bits but ended up getting engrossed and just going straight through. Although that's only 3.5 hours.Yeah its the seven hour one. I haven't seen any of his yet. Might be better to start with regular length film, no? In preparation for the marathon. I'm flirting with the idea of watching it in one sitting, although I don't know if I'll make it. Oughta be a revelatory experience I reckon.
It's by László Krasznahorkai. A bunch of Tarr's films are based on his novels or co-written by him. He wrote Satantango and The Melancholy of Resistance (which Tarr adapted into Werckmeister Harmonies) and he co-wrote The Turin Horse and some of the others.Satantango? I didn't know there was a book.
