Macbeth in a single shot
17 January 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

20 years before the acclaimed Russian Ark, Hungarian genius Tarr has achieved the same thing with almost zilch technical support. Extremely low on production values, the film's mediocrity is made up by Tarr's meticulous manipulation of space and time to provided an undistorted journey in to the mind of a man hunted down by his own guilt.

Consisting of 2 shots of 5 and 57 minutes respectively, the film is a shrunk down adaptation of Shakespeare's epic with very less focus on Lady Macbeth's psyche and more on Macbeth's himself. Tarr follows his lead characters in extreme close up as if digging deep into their minds. He never cuts to the new location too. He pans his camera into a farther place as the characters run into the new locations from behind the camera!

Really worthy film if you appreciate Tarr's style.
