MYSTERIES OF LISBON
Raúl Ruiz Portugal, 2010
Romance! Vengeance! Pirates! Don’t let the running time put you off, this sprawling, Dickensian Bildungsroman marries the narrative sweep of the best TV to the artistry of a cinematic master operating at the top of his game. Raúl Ruiz’s mesmerising epic is what weekend afternoons were made for.
