László Nemes Hungary, 2018

Eric Eidelstein's rating of the film Sunset

A young woman essentially sleepwalks through mounting violence. Nemes's shtick is more effective here than in Son of Saul, where a simple narrative structure frames a dazzling and disorienting walkabout through Budapest just before the start of WWI. Also, gorgeous hats!
