Playing now in the FLC Virtual Cinema, Béla Tarr’s newly restored Sátántangó is an epic masterwork, its generous seven hour and nineteen minute runtime making it ideal for long viewings during quarantine times. It reminds us of one silver lining to staying indoors during the coronavirus pandemic: the unique opportunity it gives us to finally dive into the longer epic movies that have long sat on our to-watch lists. We asked the FLC community on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook to tell us which epics were on their quarantine watch list, and their responses continued to impress. Featuring epics recently shown at Film at Lincoln Center including War and Peace, Stalker, The Leopard, An Elephant Sitting Still, The Irishman, Andrei Rublev, Barry Lyndon, The Tree of Wooden Clogs, Dead Souls, La Flor, and many others, it’s the perfect list for those of us still deciding what to watch this weekend. Thanks to everyone who submitted!
Although our theaters are currently closed, our Virtual Cinema and Media Center remain open 24/7. Stay connected to Film at Lincoln Center by joining our online community on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook, and don’t miss a thing by subscribing to the weekly newsletter.

Last week I watched the Apu trilogy for the first time.
Their universality and sense of inexorability – time and tide and all that – spoke to me in this moment when so many people are living through difficult circumstances and trying to roll with it.
