Synopsis

The Turin Horse, Béla Tarr’s final film, provides a fictionalized account of what happened to a horse Friedrich Nietzsche famously tried to protect from a whipping, as the horse, its owner, and the owner’s daughter arrive home in a bleak countryside…

Our take

Forget the explosions of blockbusters: the most truly apocalyptic vision of the decade comes from Hungarian master Béla Tarr. The Turin Horse, his swansong, is a spiraling journey to the brink of existence, a ferociously evocative masterpiece already acclaimed as one of the best of the 2010s. In HD.
