Lav Diaz ফিলিপাইন, 2008

Stefan Drees's rating of the film Melancholia

I think this one is far more challenging and needs more patience than other films by Lav Diaz I've seen up to now. The idea of sadness/melancholy as impuls and reason for every human expression, activity and art leads us into the heart of his poetics but also into the center of his politcal thinking. He creates some powerful as well as intimate sequences to underline this statement.
