The Turin House
Dir. Béla Tarr (2011).
Tarrs latest and, according to him, his last feature devotes 146 minutes to a weeks worth of an elderly father and his grown daughters mind-numbing daily routinea morning shot of pálinka, an evening potatoas an apocalyptic wind blows away the world outside their cabin. A death-haunted masterpiece of sensory underload, with a surging hypnotic score, its Tarrs most fully achieved, challenging movie since his 1994 epic, Sátántangó.
