Critics reviews

The first of many Jancsó films shot in 2.35:1 widescreen, The Round-Up’s constantly striking compositions emphasize the extreme rectangular frame in often abstractly rendering a very rigorous and restricted mise en scène. Offering enormous graphic interest, these images also exhibit a strong emphasis on texture – that of clothing, stone, wood, grass, stucco, earth, grass, and sky.
