Friday, December 15

 

Eight hours in a purple chair

Time to mark your calendar, buy your advance tickets, re-up your membership.

Target date: February 17, 2007.

It's Sátántangó.

At the Pacific Film Archive in Berkeley.

Béla Tarr. According to David Bordwell, four hundred and thirty-four minutes of him. In one hundred and seventy-two shots.

Two intermissions.

In black and white.

See you there?

Comments:
Yes!
 
Great!
 
ohmigod! i. love. him!
I'll be there!!
 
Too much math for me...
 
This is interesting. Having seen it before and loving it, Im not sure I would see it again, yet I might not be able to pass it up. Maybe se should have a satantago party!
 
I'm planning on it too.
 
I just saw it in Seattle the first weekend of December but I may just have to take it in again. I'm working on an essay/critique for The House... it's pretty amazing: wholly worth the whole-day investment. DVD doesn't cut it, you gotta sit through the whole thing.

(Hopefully I'll be an enrolled student by that time, too.)
 
Sounds like it'll be a good crowd already!

Scott, I like your idea of a Satantango party. Anyone know some good tango dancers and/or Satanists?
 
As a matter of fact.....
