The Turin Horse

Beckett created primarily with words; Tarr with images. Beckett might have ended 'The Turin Horse ' with: "it will be the dark, where I am, I don't know, I'll never know, in the dark you don't know, you must go on, I can't go on, I'll go on." A fitting close to this part of Bela Tarr's career - can't wait to see what he and Agnes will do next - maybe some form of social activism . . .

    A friend of mine, who does not like most classic and foreign films asked me what "The Turin Horse" was like - I answered, trying to keep it simple: "god is dead and your gonna be dead too." Of course that doesn't give Tarr's masterpiece credit - but I believe my friend got the point. . .
