Sunset exposes that horror while also finding great beauty in it - it might not be infinitely pretty, but it's worth remembering and preserving nevertheless.
History as a plunge into the choppy fray.
The bustle and vibrancy of pre-Great War Budapest remain frustratingly out of focus throughout. After 140 minutes, your eyeballs will know the feeling.
Clocking in at almost two and a half hours and shot with a growing intensity that demands the audience's full engagement, it will be a tiring, frustrating watch for many.
"Sunset" is all smoke and mirrors leading to a facile reflection on the carnage that marked the start of the modern era.
One of the film's greatest virtues is that the director does not contaminate the story with false demagogy; instead, it presents devastating events but [they're] wrapped in a plot in constant evolution. [Full review in Spanish]
The context is passionate, but the film is more hermetic than mysterious. [Full Review in Spanish]
Sunset mercilessly submerges you in the recreation of an abrupt world, without center or periphery. [Full review in Spanish]
It's a mesmerising, achingly well-made film that pulses with desperation. And it's hauntingly timely.
I'm sure there's a lot more life in his technique, as well as different signature techniques he might develop in future films. Sunset is a sophomore slump but the lessons of this misstep might just make his next film stronger.
Like its beguiling lead actress Juli Jakab, "Sunset" is enigmatic, beautiful and full of grace.
Watching Sunset is an immensely frustrating experience. At first, the story, characters and city all seem to come straight from the pages of a Dostoyevsky work, but... a sense of tedium takes hold.
