Philippines | 2013 | Lav Diaz
Rhapsodically received at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, this Filipino epic (inspired by Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment) is a four-hour drama in which an embittered Luzon law student commits a double murder that has many repercussions. The first is that an innocent family man is punished for the crime. “Five stars (highest rating)…You'd have to go back to Edward Yang's Yi Yi to find another movie that approaches a marathon-length running time yet still makes you wish it were twice as long.” –Time Out New York. “The work of a director as fascinated by decency as by ugliness.” –The NY Times.
