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 SoulsLa 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!
